ink-horn
{Keseth,} (in Chaldee, {kista,} Syriac, {kesto,} Ethiopic,
{kasut,}) denotes a bottle, or vessel to hold any fluid; and
being here united to {sophair,} a writer, is not improperly rendered as an ink-horn: so one of the editions of Aquila, [melandocheion,] and Vulgate, {atramentarium} Dr. Shaw
informs us, that among the Moors, "the {Hojas,} ie., writers or secretaries, suspend their ink-horns in their girdles."
