Tiresias: The Ancient Mediterranean Religions Source Database

Mishnah, Makhshirin, 5.4

הַמּוֹדֵד אֶת הַבּוֹר בֵּין לְעָמְקוֹ בֵּין לְרָחְבּוֹ, הֲרֵי זֶה בְכִי יֻתַּן, דִּבְרֵי רַבִּי טַרְפוֹן. רַבִּי עֲקִיבָא אוֹמֵר, לְעָמְקוֹ, בְּכִי יֻתַּן. וּלְרָחְבּוֹ, אֵינוֹ בְכִי יֻתַּן:One who measures a cistern whether for its depth of for its breadth, it comes under the law of ‘if water be put' the words of Rabbi Tarfon. But Rabbi Akiva says: if [it was measured] for its depth, it comes under the law of ‘if water be put’; but if for its breadth, it does not come under the law of ‘if water be put’.
