"[Krataigonos and his Libyans joined the army of Dionysos in their campaign against the Indians :] Their masses came led by Krataigonos, whom Ankhiroe daughter of Khremetes brought forth on her father’s riverbank in that shortlasting union with Psyollos the harebrained; the bridegroom she held in her arms was the gods’ enemy."
