[1] The expelled Dryopes settled at Carystus in Euboea, in Cyprus and in the Peloponnese at Asine, Hermione and Eion. See Herodotus 8.46.4; Thucydides 7.57.4; Diodorus Siculus 4.37.2; Pausanias 4.34.9-11.
[2] The fourth labour of Heracles was to capture the Erymanthian boar and bring it alive to Eurystheus at Mycenae. Because he was hungry, Heracles demanded one of the oxen belonging to the Dryopian king Theiodamas, who refused the request. Heracles killed Theiodamas and slaughtered the ox. See Pherecydes FGrH 3 F19); Apollodorus 2.7.1; Apollonius of Rhodes, Argonautica 1.1212ff.; Callimachus, Hymn to Artemis 160ff.
