      Actually a version of this made with whey, honey, and herbs is mentioned in many of the writings of physicians of the period.

      Hipprocates is quoted as writing "...when Adrianus, the son of Ceneus, had a pain all around the belly,...prescribed goats whey, boiled..", Galen of Pergamon a 2nd century Physician drew on Hipprocates writings he wrote "...Simple whey is particularly proper for tender patients...whey is also safely exhibited to children, women, and old persons, even during the heat of a fever..."

      Is it possible that whey was the liquid used to make the drink?

      Buttermilk works well enough as an idea...

      It was well done. It is hard to deal with the idea of a drink that was curdled - as Andrew translates the verb associated with the name. Diluting it makes sence too

      Here's a nice blog entry on kykeon (or as I prefer to spell it, Latinly,
      cyceon):

      http://www.historyofgreekfood.org/2012/10/mixing-kykeon.html

      Well done.
