Aeschylus, Eumenides 20 ff (trans. Weir Smyth) (Greek tragedy C5th B.C.) :
"[The Pythia prophetess of the oracle at Delphoi invokes the gods :] ‘These are the gods I place in the beginning of my prayer [Gaia, Themis, Phoibe and Apollon] . . . and I worship [also] the Nymphai (Nymphs) where the Korykian (Corycian) rock is hollow, the delight of birds and haunt of gods. Bromios [Dionysos] has held the region--I do not forget him . . . I call on the streams of Pleistos (Pleistus) and the strength of Poseidon, and highest Zeus.’"
Apollonius Rhodius, Argonautica 2. 170 ff (trans. Rieu) (Greek epic C3rd B.C.) :
