Riddle me this…

The Anglo-Saxons were very fond of riddles and word-games. At a recent feast, I spoke these riddling words:

In youth I stood still,
Facing the sun.
People slew me,
They spun me round and round.
After death, I am still again,
But people grow dizzy.

As the banquet-guests puzzled over these words, I took a drink of mead and explained that it wasn’t something obscure.

A wooden cup, turned on a pole-lathe, and filled with mead.

Did you guess it?
