Hippokrates, On the Sacred Disease 6.364

“We ourselves both affix boundaries to sanctuaries and the sacred precincts of the gods in order that no one may cross them unless he is pure and, upon entering, sprinkle ourselves with water not as if defiling ourselves, but as ridding ourselves from pre-existing pollutions we may have.” – Hippokrates, On the Sacred Disease 6.364
