/ˈflæɡən/
noun
1.
a large bottle of wine, cider, etc
2.
a vessel having a handle, spout, and narrow neck
n.

mid-15c., from Middle French flacon, Old French flascon, from Late Latin flasconem (nominative flasco) “bottle” (see flask).

Heb. ashishah, (2 Sam. 6:19; 1 Chr. 16:3; Cant. 2:5; Hos. 3:1), meaning properly “a cake of pressed raisins.” “Flagons of wine” of the Authorized Version should be, as in the Revised Version, “cakes of raisins” in all these passages. In Isa. 22:24 it is the rendering of the Hebrew _nebel_, which properly means a bottle or vessel of skin. (Comp. 1 Sam. 1:24; 10:3; 25:18; 2 Sam. 16:1, where the same Hebrew word is used.)
