Chous were jugs. Small versions of these were associated with the young. Choes are usually decorated with children, perhaps learning to crawl or playing with toy carts. When boys were 3 years old, they were given a chous filled with wine at the Anthesteria festival. They would be allowed to drink the wine to prove that they were on their way to being men. Sometimes choes were put in the graves of children.
