The Romans drank wine that had to be dense, bitter, overly alcoholic, usually seasoned. Therefore, the dilution of the wine was a necessary (pure wine, the merum, was reserved for the gods). The mixing took place during lunch in the crater or on its glass making to serve hot or cold, or snow, depending on the quality of the wine and in a proportion that sometimes touched the four parts water to one part wine. The custom of mixing water with wine was not only Roman, but of all antiquity. The lyric greek Xenophanes sang: "No verse in the crater / wine only, but it should be mixed water / and after intoxicated.». And yet Anacreon in another delightful piece: "Come, bring us, or child / the crater because I brindi / drink, and all without taking breath, / and you will pay ten shares / of clear water / and five of wine: I want / inebriate still ... no offense.
