The Argives captured Thebes
and handed it over to Thersander, son of Polyneices. When the expedition under Agamemnon against Troy
mistook its course and the reverse in Mysia
occurred, Thersander too met his death at the hands of Telephus. He had shown himself the bravest Greek at the battle; his tomb, the stone in the open part of the market-place, is in the city Elaea on the way to the plain of the Caicus
, and the natives say that they sacrifice to him as to a hero.
