certatam, ‘contested,’ ‘striven for,’ a rare use for which cf. Liv.xxv. III. 14.So 720 regnata Amor. I. xv. 26, Roma triumphati dum caput orbis erat. Milt. P.l. X. 572, ‘not as man, whom they triumphed once lapsed.’ Apollo, Diana and Hercules disputed the possession of Ambracia in Epirus with its territory, and referred their dispute to Cragaleus, son of Dryops (the country about Ambracia is called Dryopis by Dicaearchus). After hearing their claims Cragaleus decided in favour of Hercules. Apollo in anger changed him to a rock, to which in later times the Ambraciots continued to present offerings.
