Athenæus then, having delivered this lecture on water, like a rhetorician, stopped awhile, and then began again. Amphis, the comic writer, says somewhere or other—
There is, I take it, often sense in wine,And Antiphanes says—
And those are stupid who on water dine.
Take the hair, it well is written,The ancients applied the word ἄκρατον even to unmixed water. Sophron says—
Of the dog by whom you're bitten.
Work off one wine by his brother,
And one labour with another;
[p. 72] Horns with horns, and noise with noise,
One crier with his fellow's voice
Insult with insult, war with war,
Faction with faction, care with care;
Cook with cook, and strife with strife,
Business with business, wife with wife.
