The ancient Egyptians used sistrums as part of their rites to scare away evil spirits. Do Hellenes have any kind of instrument that is similar?

There were various instruments used in Classical Greek and Roman music, and music was often played during religious rituals, generally with the intention of drowning out potentially inauspicious sounds or words from elsewhere. It seems that rather shrill wind instruments were among the most commonly used during rituals, though types of drums and cymbals were also used.
