[1] Or water: see LSJ s.v.
[2] Greek Anthology 6.44.3-4 (attributed by some to Leonidas of Tarentum), on Heronax's libations to Satyrs and Dionysus after first vintages from new vineyards; cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 137), (vol. II, 391-392), and other extracts from this epigram at delta 1490 and omicroniota 139. To credit the author of this epigram, the Anthologia Palatina pointed toward some as attesting Leonidas of Tarentum; cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 137). And these attributions were further endorsed by the Anthologia Planudea as coming from Leonidas (ibid.). However, Gow and Page note (vol. II, 391) that although the text appears to be Leonidean, this is still true of many imitative epigrams, and this may have suggested the assertion that this was Leonidas's. In fact, after all of this, Gow and Page (vol. II, p. 391) are inclined to reject this epigram as being genuinely Leonidean (ibid.).
