1 The Delphian oracle pronounced a curse on the man who killed Archilochus, because ‘he had slain the servant of the Muses.’ And the same oracle told the people of Orchomenus, when a plague had fallen upon them, that ‘the only remedy was to bring back the bones of Hesiod from the land of Naupactus to the land of Orchomenus.’
2 Dionysus is said to have appeared to Lysander and ordered him to allow Sophocles to be buried in the tomb of his fathers, on the road to Deceleia, then occupied by the Lacedaemonian army. See Pausanias, i. 21, 1, with Frazer's note.
