VIAL occurs in OT only in 1 Samuel 10:1 AV [Note: Authorized Version.] , and 2 Kings 9:1; 2 Kings 9:3 RV [Note: Revised Version.] (AV [Note: Authorized Version.] box ) for an oil-flask. In NT, RV [Note: Revised Version.] has substituted ‘ bowl ’ for ‘vial’ throughout ( Revelation 5:8; Revelation 15:7; Revelation 16:1 ff.). The phialç was a flat vessel, resembling a saucer, specially used for pouring libations of wine upon the altar of a deity.
