Cauldron

A cauldron (from Latin 'caldarium', hot bath) is a large metal-made pot for cooking and/or boiling over an open fire, usually attached to a hanger with the shape of an arc. In legend, a cauldron is usually where leprechauns keep their treasure, and also where witches prepare their potions, most notably the wierd sisters in the play Macbeth. As a cooking vessel it is mostly obsolete. It is believed that a predecessor of the Holy Grail myth was a cauldron. [1] (http://www.mystical-www.co.uk/grail/)
