Besides the account already given they tell another story about the Sixteen Women as follows. Damophon, it is said, when tyrant of Pisa
did much grievous harm to the Eleans. But when he died, since the people of Pisa
refused to participate as a people in their tyrant's sins, and the Eleans too became quite ready to lay aside their grievances, they chose a woman from each of the sixteen cities of Elis
still inhabited at that time to settle their differences, this woman to be the oldest, the most noble, and the most esteemed of all the women.
