      We might add here the tendency of kinto poetry to be associated with articulating and eliciting love and desire (whether heterosexual, homoerotic or homosexual), as well as the noted homoeroticism of the supra ritual itself with which the kinto is associated.

      The supra became the symbol of hospitality manifested by a particular way of eating, drinking and feasting in which guests are treated with outmost[sic] attention.
