αὗται δὲ πρότερον Κρόνου ἐλέγοντο στῆλαι, διὰ τὸ μέχρι τῶν τῇδε ὁρίζεσθαι δῆθεν τὴν ἀρχὴν αὐτοῦ· δεύτερον δὲ ἐλέχθησαν Βριάρεω, ὥς φησιν Εὐφορίων· τρίτον δὲ Ἡρακλέους.

Eridanus . . . est item Italiae qui et Padus, item Hiberiae, auctoribus Aeschylo [fr. 73a Radt], Pausania [1.4.1], Euphorione minore.
169 Scholiast on Dionysius the Periegete
These pillars were initially called the pillars of Cronos, because the boundary of his kingdom lay in these regions; next they were said to belong to Briareus, as Euphorion says; and thirdly they became known as the pillars of Heracles.
cf. Scholiast on Pindar, Nemean Odes
The pillars of Heracles are also known as the pillars of Briareus, according to < Euphorion?? >:
And the pillars of Aegaeon, the Giant, lord of the sea.194
170 Stephanus of Byzantium
Daphnous, a city of Phocis. The name is masculine. The inhabitant is Daphnountios or Daphnousios, the feminine Daphnousis. Euphorion calls it Daphnousa.
171 “Apuleius”, On Spelling
The river Eridanus . . . is located both in Italy, where it is also known as the Po, and in Iberia, according to Aeschylus, Pausanias, and Euphorion the younger.195
- 194See Parthenius 34.
- 195ps.-Apuleius has a poor reputation (see Lightfoot 1999, 212–214), but, following Hollis’ vin- dication of 55, I have included this among the genuine fragments. The datum about Aeschylus is drawn from Pliny, NH 37.32, who also reports that Aeschylus identified the Eridanus with the Rhone. Pausanias 1.4.1 does not use the word “Iberia”, but makes the Eridanus run through a country that borders on the Atlantic. We cannot tell what Euphorion said, except that he presumably opposed the common identification of the river with the Po. “Euphorion the younger” presumably distinguishes the Hellenistic poet from the son of Aeschylus.
