The Thasians, who are Phoenicians by descent, and sailed from Tyre
, and from Phoenicia
generally, together with Thasus, the son of Agenor, in search of Europa, dedicated at Olympia
a Heracles, the pedestal as well as the image being of bronze. The height of the image is ten cubits, and he holds a club in his right hand and a bow in his left. They told me in Thasos
that they used to worship the same Heracles as the Tyrians, but that afterwards, when they were included among the Greeks, they adopted the worship of Heracles the son of Amphitryon.
