 When Heracles had put off this life and from being mortal became a god, his sons at first went on divers wanderings and faced many perils because of the power of their enemies;1 but after the death of Eurystheus they fixed their habitation among the Dorians.

Apollo, however, made them no answer to the questions which they asked, but merely bade them seek the country of their fathers.
