Liknon (λίκνον), a long basket, in which the image of Dionysus was carried in the Dionysia. The Liknon was the winnowing fan into which the corn was received after threshing, and was, very naturally, used in the rites of both Bacchus and Ceres. It was also employed to carry the instruments of sacrifice, and firstfruits or other offerings. SEE BACCHUIS.
