Οὐδὲν ἱερόν: Ἡρακλῆς εἶπεν Ἀδώνιδος ἰδὼν ξόανον, ὡς τῶν εὐεργετησάντων τοὺς ἀνθρώπους μόνων ὀφειλόντων τιμᾶσθαι: ἢ ὅτι οἱ καταφυγόντες εἰς αὐτὸ δοῦλοι ἄδειαν οὐκ εἶχον.

Likewise in Photius, Lexicon omicron615 Theodoridis, from Pausanias the Atticist; and see other references there, including several of the paroemiographers (e.g. Zenobius 5.47 = Clearchus fr.66b Wehrli).
cf. alpha 515 on the statue of Adonis; and for Adonis generally, see Apollodorus 3.14.3-4 (web address 1).
