Name (also Amper, Bütte, Eimber, Einber, bucket, skid) for a mostly open-top container for liquids or bulk material in cylindrical or slightly conical shape, which used to be preferably made of wood or leather, today made of metal or plastic. For carrying it is usually provided with a movable handle. Etymologically, the term bucket is probably Latin amphora due.
It is also an ancient one Volume, for wine and other liquids already in the Bible mentioned. The sizes are given very differently. From the 19th century, the filling volume was usually about 12 to 15 liters, which is relatively easy to transport by a person. A so-called bucket could be carried by two people on a pole and took about 60 liters. See also below wine vessels,
