Eudicus informs us that in Hestiæotis1 there are two
springs; one of which, Cerona, renders sheep black that drink
of it, while the other, called Neleus, turns them white: if,
again, a sheep should happen to drink their waters mixed, its
fleece will be mottled. According to Theophrastus, the water
of the Crathis,2 a river of Thurii, makes sheep and cattle
white, while that of the river Sybaris turns them black.
