Among the sights of Thesprotia
are a sanctuary of Zeus at Dodona
and an oak sacred to the god. Near Cichyrus is a lake called Acherusia, and a river called Acheron
. There is also Cocytus, a most unlovely stream. I believe it was because Homer had seen these places that he made bold to describe in his poems the regions of Hades, and gave to the rivers there the names of those in Thesprotia
. While Theseus was thus kept in bonds, the sons of Tyndareus marched against Aphidna
, captured it and restored Menestheus to the kingdom.
