The Greek word kantharos meant dung-beetle as well as referring to Dionysos’ distinctive drinking-cup. In Egypt the God Khepri was worshiped in the form of a dung-beetle who daily pushed the morning Sun up the Mound of Creation. You can read more about him at Edward Butler’s Goddesses and Gods of the Ancient Egyptians: A Theological Encyclopedia.
