INKHORN . In one of Ezekiel’s visions ( Ezekiel 9:2-3 ; Ezekiel 9:11 ) a man appears with a scribe’s inkhorn by his side (lit. ‘upon his loins’). The ‘inkhorn’ consisted of a case for the reed pens, with a cup or bulb for holding the ink, near the upper end of the case. It was carried in the girdle (hence the above expression).
