[265] This line, which is quoted by Pausanias x. 29. 10, is found also in the pseudo-Hesiodean ‘Shield of Herakles,’ 182. Theseus is mentioned again only in Od. 11.322, 631, both doubtful passages; the latter indeed is expressly said by Hereas of Megara (Plutarch ap. Thes. xx.) to be an interpolation of Peisistratos to please the Athenians. It is, however, a question if the same may not be equally said of the whole reference to the Lapithai; it is doubtful if there ever was a Peirithoos in any but Attic legend.
