Where does the name Pyxis come from?

PYXIS is the constellation known as "The Compass Box", "Navigators' Compass" or "Mariners' Compass" and was originally part of Argo Navis but was split up by the Astronomical Union into Carina (The Keel), Puppis (The Poop), PYXIS and Vela (The Sail). Pyxis has both navigational and medical connotations. Surveyors use the constellation in the southern hemisphere.
