Write in water

Posted by Staffan Wahlgren on August 16, 2008 at 15:05

Does anyone know anything about the expression "write in water" (or similar) prior to Shakespeare? It exists in ancient Greek (Shakespeare may have got it from Plutarch). I thought I could save myself the trouble to trace this - if someone knows. Thank you.
