Winer's Grammar, 32): so of prosperity, πίνειν τό ποτήριον μου or ὁ ἐγώ πίνω, to undergo the same calamities which I undergo, Plautus Cas. 5,2, 53 (50) ut senex hoc eodem poculo quod ego bibi biberet, i. e. that he might be treated as harshly as I was); used of the divine penalties: Alcaeus, Sappho), Herodotus, Ctesias (401 B.C.>), Aristophanes, Lucian, others; the Sept. for כּוס.)
