bottle

the devils dictionary
n. An oracle consulted by Panurge as to whether he should marry. By the ancient Crapuli the bottle was worshiped as a deity, but since the great reformation the Amphoristic religion has prevailed among their descendants—that is to say, the worship of the Little Brown Jug, who, under the name of Juggernaut, is revered also by the Hindoos.
