Pekos, also [called] Zeus,[1] died after he had handed over the dominion of the west to his own son Hermes; he had lived 120 years. And as he was dying he ordered that his body should be buried on the island of Crete, on which [tomb] is inscribed: "here lies dead Pekos who [is] also [called] Zeus." Very many have mentioned this tomb in their own books.
