There is also an altar of Zeus Teleius （Full-grown）, with a square image, a shape of which the Arcadians seem to me to be exceedingly fond. There are also here tombs of Tegeates, the son of Lycaon, and of Maera, the wife of Tegeates. They say that Maera was a daughter of Atlas, and Homer makes mention of her in the passage1 where Odysseus tells to Alcinous his journey to Hades, and of those whose ghosts he beheld there.
