“ Apollodorus and the rest1 say as follows. Guneus left his own ships, and having come to the Cinyps river in Libya he dwelt there.2 But Meges and Prothous, with many others, were cast away at Caphereus in Euboea3... and when Prothous was shipwrecked at Caphereus, the Magnesians with him drifted to Crete and settled there.

Tzetzes, Scholia on Lycophron, 902

1 This paragraph is quoted from Tzetzes, Scholiast on Lycophron 902.

2 According to another account, Guneus was drowned at sea. See Aristot. Peplos 32(37), in Bergk's Poetae Lyrici Graeci, ii.654.

3 Epitaphs on these two drowned men are ascribed to Aristot. Peplos 25(19) and 28(38). See Bergk's Poetae Lyrici Graeci, ii.653, 654. Meges was leader of the Dulichians, and Prothous was leader of the Magnesians. See Apollod. E.3.12 and Apollod. E.14.
