Phoronis

Phoronis

1 Clement, Miscellanies

For Acusilaus says that Phoroneus was the first human; hence the poet of the Phoronis said he was

the father of mortal men.

2 Scholiast on Apollonius of Rhodes, “Idaean Dactyls’

And the composer of the Phoronis writes as follows:

. . . where the wizards of Ida, Phrygian men, had their mountain homes: Kelmis, great Damnameneus, and haughty Akmon, skilled servants of Adrastea of the mountain, they who first, by the arts of crafty Hephaestus, discovered dark iron in the mountain glens, and brought it to the fire, and promulgated a fine achievement.
