CLASSICAL LITERATURE QUOTES
Pseudo-Apollodorus, Bibliotheca 2. 1 (trans. Aldrich) (Greek mythographer C2nd A.D.) :
"To Okeanos (Oceanus) and Tethys was born a son Inakhos (Inachus), after whom the Inakhos river in Argos is named. By Melia, daughter of Okeanos, he had sons named Phoroneus and Aigialeus (Aegialeus). Although Aigialeus died childless, his whole land was called Aigialeia. Phoroneus ruled the entire region later called the Peloponnesos, and by a Nymphe named Teledike (Teledice) fathered Apis and Niobe."
