polytheist extractions

Phylarchos, The Histories Frag. 25

“Those who sacrifice to Helios in Greece make their libations of honey as they never bring wine to the altars. They do this because they believe that it is proper that the god who keeps the whole universe in order and regulates everything and is always going round and superintending the whole, should in no respect be connected with drunkenness.” – Phylarchos, The Histories Frag. 25
