"Those of the doctors who came forward were urging [someone?] to drink of wine; for, trusting in their craft, they were maintaining that in this depends whether man is in good health or not."[1]
"For could you find anything more useful than wine?" In the Homeric [phrase]: "when a man is weary with toil, wine will greatly increase his force".
