3. What phrase is printed on all of New York City's iconic Anthora cups?

Leslie Buck of the Sherri Cup Company designed the cup in 1963 to appeal to Greek-owned coffee shops in the city. Since their introduction, these blue-and-white patterned cups have become a New York City staple. Mr. Buck never made any royalties from the cup, but he did so well in sales commission that it hardly mattered, his son told The New York Times after Buck’s death. When he retired from Sherri – a company that has since been absorbed by Solo – the company gave Buck 10,000 specially made Anthoras, printed with a testimonial inscription.
