ἐν . . τῷ ἱερῷ—this must have been W. of Oeneon, within a short march of the frontier.

χρησθέν—accus. abs

ἐν Νεμέα—of course ambiguous. We learn from Plutarch and Pausanias that Hesiod and his servant were murdered by two young men because they believed that the poet had insulted their sister. Their bodies were cast into the sea. Hesiod's was carried “by dolphins’ to Molycria. Thence it was taken to Orchomenns in Boeotia and buried there.
