Headword: Ὕδωρ βορὸν καὶ ἀγρυπνίῃ βορόν
Adler number: upsilon,52
Translated headword: appetite-inducing water is appetite-inducing in insomnia
Vetting Status: high
So [Hippocrates] is saying that water is nourishing not only to the feverish, but also to insomniacs.
Greek Original:
Ὕδωρ βορὸν καὶ ἀγρυπνίῃ βορόν: λέγει οὖν, ὅτι τὸ ὕδωρ οὐκ ἐν τοῖς πυρέττουσι μόνον ἐστὶ τρόφιμον, ἀλλὰ κἂν τοῖς ἀγρυπνοῦσιν.
For the headword phrase -- Hippocrates, De morbis popularibus 6.4.18 -- see already at beta 397; as copied here, however, it is garbled (by turning nominative 'insomnia' into dative).
The Suda's comment has no parallel elsewhere.
