" [Libyans joined the army Dionysos for his campaign against the Indians :] Their masses came led by Krataigonos (Crataegonus), whom Ankhiroe (Anchiroe) daughter of [the river] Khremetes (Chremetes) brought forth on her father's riverbank in that shortlasting union with Psyllos (Psyllus) the harebrained; the bridegroom she held in her arms was the gods' enemy."
