Callimachus, Hymn 4 to Delos 75 ff (trans. Mair) (Greek poet C3rd B.C.) :
"[The rivers and springs flee before the pregnant goddess Leto, fearing the wrath of Hera should they provide her refuge :] Fled , too, Aonia [Boiotia] on the same course, and Dirke (Dirce) and Strophia [the two springs of Thebes], holding the hands of their sire, dark-pebbled Ismenos (Ismenus)."
