the mortar  and pestle

The mortar and pestle has been used for grinding food and medicines since the early Egyptian period. 

They date to the earliest shamans and medicine men among most cultures. 

The tools were mentioned in the “Elers Papyrus” of 1550 BC (the oldest preserved piece of medical literature) and in the Old Testament. 

Their names derive from Latin, mortar from mortarium, meaning, among other usages, "receptacle for pounding"

and "product of grinding or pounding"; and pestle from pistillum, meaning "pounder", leading to English pestle. 

The mortar and pestle remains today the iconic symbol for medical prescriptions.

Today, mortars make wonderful holders for wine bottles - just the right size and will keep white wines cool.
