Ancient literary sources (2)
Town of Argolis, inhabitants claim to be Trojans.
Tenea, also, is in Corinthia,
and in it is a temple of the Teneatan Apollo; and it is said that most of the
colonists who accompanied Archias, the leader of the colonists to Syracuse,
set out from there, and that afterwards Tenea prospered more than the other settlements,
and finally even had a government of its own, and, revolting from the Corinthians,
joined the Romans, and endured after the destruction of Corinth.
And mention is also made of an oracle that was given to a certain man from Asia,
who enquired whether it was better to change his home to Corinth:
"Blest is Corinth,
but Tenea for me."
But in ignorance some pervert this as follows: "but Tegea
for me!" And it is said that Polybus reared Oedipus here. And it seems, also,
that there is a kinship between the peoples of Tenedos
and Tenea, through Tennes the son of Cycnus, as Aristotle says; and the similarity
in the worship of Apollo among the two peoples affords strong indications of such
kinship. (Strabo 8.6.22)
