A lécythiophile (masc.) or less commonly, lécythomyrophile, is a word employed in French and English (without the accent) to designate a miniature perfume bottle collector.
"Lécythiophile" literally means the friend of the lécythe (masc.) from ancient Greek lekythos, which used to refer to a vase containing oil or perfume destined to bodycare during the Greek antiquity.......
They were often used by athletes as well as used as funerary vases to be put on tombs as offerings.
The shape of this type of vase was usually long, with a long narrow neck and a large mouthpiece, although as the lecythe decorated with a sculpture of a winged Eros from the British Museum shows, there were ornate variations of the standard shape.
