Hesiod in the Theogony1 —for there are some who assign this hexameter poem to Hesiod—speaks of Styx as the daughter of Ocean and the wife of Pallas. Men say that Linus too gives a like account in his verses, though when I read these they struck me as altogether spurious.

1 See Hes. Th. 383. Compare also Hes. Th. 776, 785 foll., Hes. Th. 805, 806.
