After the altars I have enumerated there is one on which they sacrifice to Alpheius and Artemis together. The cause of this Pindar1
, I think, intimates in an ode, and I give it2
in my account of Letrini
. Not far from it stands another altar of Alpheius, and by it one of Hephaestus. This altar of Hephaestus some Eleans call the altar of Warlike Zeus. These same Eleans also say that Oenomaus used to sacrifice to Warlike Zeus on this altar whenever he was about to begin a chariot-race with one of the suitors of Hippodameia.
