Order No. 895.BDP
The Pythagorean Mug (also known as the Moderation Mug or Tantalus Mug) is a drinking vessel that requires the user to drink moderately. Due to its ingenious construction, the cup can only be filled up to a certain height. The modest user can enjoy his drink in peace. However, if he is greedy and pours himself over the filling line, the entire contents are emptied onto the lap of the drinker. It is said that Pythagoras wanted to use this cup to teach his wine drinking workers how to be moderate.
Also available as a noble wine glass.
