The Greeks who say that the Peloponnesus
has five, and only five, divisions must agree that Arcadia
contains both Arcadians and Eleans, that the second division belongs to the Achaeans, and the remaining three to the Dorians. Of the races dwelling in Peloponnesus
the Arcadians and Achaeans are aborigines. When the Achaeans were driven from their land by the Dorians, they did not retire from Peloponnesus
, but they cast out the Ionians and occupied the land called of old Aegialus, but now called Achaea
from these Achaeans. The Arcadians, on the other hand, have from the beginning to to the present time continued in possession of their own country.
