One which is given three parts of water, but two of wine. [This is] the best mixture, two parts of wine and three of water. Aristophanes [writes]: "take and drink [a drink] mixed three and two [...] For Trito-born thirded it with water." He means to indicate that Athena made it of such a kind as to be able to bear three measures of water.
