Acratus (left) and Euphrosyne

Acratus (in Roman mythology) or Akratos (Ακρατος, Greek mythology) is the god or spirit (daimon) of drinking unmixed wine. As wine was normally drank when mixed with water in Ancient Greece, Acratus/Akratos may have been associated with festive excess. He is the husband of Euphrosyne.
