Scholiast on Apollonius Rhodius, Arg. i. 128
Hesiod in the Marriage of Keyx says that he [Herakles] landed [from the Argo] to look for water and was left behind in Magnesia near the place called Aphetae [without friends] because of his desertion there.
Zenobius, ii. 19
Hesiod used the proverb in the following way; Herakles is represented as having constantly visited the house of Keyx of Trachis and spoken thus:
"Of their own selves the good make for the feasts of good."
Scholiast on Homer, Il. xiv. 119
"And horse-driving Keyx beholding ..."
Athenaeus, ii. p. 49b
Hesiod in the Marriage of Keyx—for though grammar-school boys alienate it from the poet, yet I consider the poem ancient—calls the tables tripods.
Gregory of Corinth, On Forms of Speech (Rhett. Gr. vii. 776)
"But when they had done with desire for the equal-shared feast, even then they brought from the forest the mother of a mother [sc. wood], dry and parched, to be slain by her own children" [sc. to be burnt in the flames].
