Below the foot-hills of Olympus, along the Peneius River, lies Gyrton, the Perrhaebian and Magnetan city, in which Peirithoüs and Ixion ruled; and Crannon is at a distance of one hundred stadia from Gyrton, and writers say that when the poet says, “"Verily these twain from Thrace,"
1 he means by "Ephyri" the Crannonians and by "Phlegyae" the Gyrtonians.2
