A book by Prodicus [was] entitled Horai. In it he depicted Heracles encountering virtue and vice: each of them calls him to behave like her; Heracles opts for virtue, judging her exertions preferable to the sweet opportunities offered by vice.

From the scholia to Aristophanes, Clouds 361, where Prodicus (pi 2365, pi 2366) is mentioned.
For the fullest synopsis of the Horai (a title whose meaning is obscure) see Xenophon, Memorabilia 2.1.21-34 (= Prodicus fr.2 Diels-Kranz).
