Son of Piso and Aristaechma; a Camirian from Rhodes;[1] for Camirus was a city of Rhodes. Some also relate that he was a contemporary of Eumolpus[2] and his lover, but some [make him] even older than Hesiod[3] and others place him in the thirty-third Olympiad.[4] He also had a sister Dioclea. His poems [comprise] a Heraclea in 2 books; it is [an account of] the deeds of Heracles; there he was the first who gave a club to Heracles. The remainder of his poems are considered spurious, composed by others, among whom was the poet Aristeus.[5]
