Acesto'rides

wrote four books of mythical stories relating to every city (τῶν κατὰ πόλιν μυθικῶν). In these he gave many real historical accounts, as well as those which were merely mythical, but he entitled them μνθικὰ to avoid calumny and to indicate the pleasant nature of the work. It was compiled from Conon, Apollodorus, Protagoras and others. (Phot. Bibl. cod. 189; Tzetz. Chil. 7.144.)
