Evenus, the son of Mars and Sterope, had a daughter Marpessa by his wife Alcippe, the daughter of Oenomaus; and this girl he had a mind to keep a virgin. But
Idas, the son of Aphareus, ran away with her from a choir.
Evenus pursued him, and finding he could not overtake
him, he threw himself into the river Lycormas, and became
immortal.—Dositheus's First Book of Italian History.
Anius, a king of the Tuscans, had a delicate, handsome
daughter, whose name was Salia, and he took great care
to keep her a virgin. But Cathetus, a man of quality,
seeing her sporting herself, fell passionately in love with
her, and carried her away to Rome. The father made
after her, and when he saw there was no catching of her,
he threw himself into a river that from him took the name
of Anio. Cathetus begot Latinus and Salius upon the
body of Salia, the root of a noble race.—Aristides Milesius, and Alexander Polyhistor's Third Book of Italian History.
