will be uprooted from Lacedaemon and the Argive gulf and Mycenae.As it is, Euphemus shall find in the beds of foreign women a chosen race, who, with the honor of the gods, will come to this island and beget a man who will be master of the dark-clouded plains; whom one day Phoebus, in his home rich in gold, will mention in his oracles when he goes into the Pythian shrine at a later time; Phoebus will tell him to carry cities in his ships to the fertile precinct of the son of Cronus beside the Nile.” Indeed, these were the oracular verses of Medea.

He was honored in his townsmen's company, and he upheld the raising of horses according to the customs of all Greeks. He also welcomed all the banquets for the gods,and the force of the blowing wind never made him furl his sail around his hospitable table; he journeyed as far as Phasis in the summer, and in the winter sailed to the banks of the Nile. Now, although envious hopes beset the minds of mortals, let him never hush in silence either his father's excellenceor these songs. For I did not fashion them to stand idle. Give this message, Nicasippus, when you come across my trusty friend.
