Aqua-Fontis is spring water, used in a Robert Burns poem or two, as it is (or was) in the Scottish vernacular.

I quote from "A True Story" written 1785....

"Calces o' fossils, earths, and trees;
True sal-marinum o' the seas;
The farina of beans an' pease,
He has't in plenty;
Aqua-fontis, what you please,
He can content ye.
