[2] Thespiades is the eponymous founder of Thespiai (theta 276, theta 277) in Boeotia, central Greece. As to the quotation itself, in the accusative plural, Adler suggested Nicolaus of Damascus (nu 393), and this is taken up and confirmed by Favuzzi [below] in his study of eleven Suda entries -- cf. delta 1591, epsilon 935, epsilon 1539, epsilon 3022, theta 274, theta 412, kappa 2029, pi 1697, pi 2069, pi 2678 -- which all in his view relate to Heracles and all come from Nicolaus.
