καὶ προελθὼν τὴν ἀκρατοποσίαν Σκυθικὴν καλεῖ πόσιν·

According to Anacreon [the right proportions are] one measure of wine to two of water:

Come now lad, bring me a cup, so that I can drink a deep draught. Pour in ten ladles of water, and five of wine, so that once again I can respectably make my devotions to Bacchus.

And later on he calls the drinking of neat wine ‘Scythian’:

Come again then, and let us not practice Scythian drinking with all its banging and crashing, but rather drink moderately, and with beautiful hymns.
