The earliest known representation of a Pneumatic Organ is that found on the obelisk erected at Constantinople by Theodosius the Great (A. D. 346–395). The sculpture, which is of considerable length, contains the representation of two small Organs, formed of pipes planted on wind-chests, and supplied with wind from detached bellows, of the diagonal form, on the upper-boards of which men are standing. Between the Organs are ranged ten figures, three of which are represented as performing on the tibia pares, while the rest are apparently singing and gesticulating.

The Siamese call their heen ‘The Laos organ,’ which indicates that they consider it to have been originally derived by them from Laos. Moreover, there deserves to be noticed another Chinese instrument of this kind, simple in construction, which probably represents the cheng in its most primitive condition. It is to be found among the Meaou-tsze, or mountaineers, who are supposed to be the aboriginal inhabitants of China. They call it sang. This species has no bowl, or air-chest; it rather resembles the Pan-pipe, but is sounded by means of a common mouth-piece consisting of a tube, which is placed at a right angle across the pipes.
