Ὑδροφορία: ἑορτὴ πένθιμος Ἀθήνησιν ἐπὶ τοῖς ἐν τῷ κατακλυσμῷ ἀπολομένοις, ὡς Ἀπολλώνιος.

Likewise in Photius, Lexicon upsilon25 Theodoridis, and similarly elsewhere.
Probably part of several rituals, in the month of Anthesterion, connected with the Flood of Deucalion (delta 283).
cf. Pausanias 1.18.7; Plutarch, Sulla 14.6.
[1] Adler noted Naber's view that 'Apollonius' is corruptly transmitted, and she herself suggested (without going so far as to print) 'Apollodorus'. Orthodoxy nonetheless accepts that this is Apollonius of Acharnai [C2 BCE] FGrH 365 F4.
