The Crateris Cloth is the cloth of the Saint Suikyo in Saint Seiya: Next Dimension.
The Crateris constellation is based on a myth regarding Apollo. In the story, a crow, the god’s personal bird, was sent to fetch water from the cup, but, seeing a fig tree, procrastinated until the figs were ready to be eaten. Trying to cover his tracks, the crow brought a hydra back with the water to explain the delay, but all three were put in the sky, the vengeful hydra forever keeping the crow away from Crateris. In the manga, the cup is said to be the very vessel Athena drinks from to slake her thirst after battle.
The Crateris Silver Cloth has special abilities, when water is placed inside it’s constellation form. Looking into the water will reflect your own future, or a future connected to you. Drinking the water can return one’s strength to them, and heal wounds.

The night was extremely cold because of the snowstorm. Suikyo took the boys close to himself and warmed them with his body heat, so they could survive. Thereafter, Suikyo and Tenma strongly bonded emotionally, Tenma became the disciple of the Crateris Saint and was trained by him to become the Pegasus Saint.
