'Without being part of the main body of water, a cold water spring appeared not far from the sea. The sick people who drank it realized great benefits and for this reason many came from far away places to make use of the water. The generals of the king Antigonos, whishing to get very large economic benefits, taxed the people who drank the water and for this reason the spring dried out.' From Atheneus' The Learned Banqueters. Book 3:73(c-d).
