Stesichorus

219 Plutarch, On the slow revenge of the deity

So Stesichorus makes Clytemnestra’s dream accord with reality and truth when he says something like the following:

And it seemed to her that a snake came, the top of its head bloodstained, and out of it appeared a Pleisthenid king.1

Scylla1

220 Scholiast on Apollonius of Rhodes (‘the malignant Ausonian Scylla, child of Phorcys’)

Stesichorus in his Scylla says that Scylla is the daughter of Lamia.2

Boar-Hunters1

221 Athenaeus, Scholars at Dinner

Stesichorus says in his Boar-hunters, and buried the tip of his snout beneath the earth.2
