Menippus of Gadara | Athenaeus, Deipnosophistae Book I.32.d-e

Wines which are more carefully treated with sea water do not cause headache; they loosen the bowels, excite the stomach, cause inflations, and assist digestion. Examples are the Myndian and the Halicarnassian. The Cynic Menippus, at any rate, calls Myndus “salt-water drinker.” The wine of Cos also is very highly treated with sea water.
