They say that Aspledon was left by the inhabitants because of a shortage of water. They say also that the city got its name from Aspledon, who was a son of the nymph Mideia and Poseidon. Their view is confirmed by some verses composed by Chersias, a man of Orchomenus:—“To Poseidon and glorious Mideia
Was born Aspledon in the spacious city.
Chersias of Orchomenus, unknown location.
