Pausan. I. 18. " Near the Gymnasium is the temple of Theseus, which contains a representation of the war carried on by the Athenians against the Amazons, and likewise of the battle between the Centaurs and the La- pithae. Theseus has already slain a Centaur, while, with regard to the other combatants, the contest still remains undecided. This temple was built by the Athenians, after the occupation of Marathon by the Medes, when Cimon, the son of Miltiades, having subdued the S rians, took severe revenge on them for the slaughter of Theseus, and transferred his bones to Athens/' J. P. " Nullus Erechthidis fertur celebratior illo Illuxisse dies. Agitant convivia patres Et medium vulgus. Necnon et cannina, vino Ingenium faciente, canunt tibi, maxhne Theseu, Consonat adsensu populi, precibusque tkventfim Regia; nee tota tristis locus ullus in urbe est." Ovid. Met. VII. u O! ne'er with deeper joy did Athens burn, Than, Theseus, when she hailed thy proud return, Laden with triumphs. People, princes, all, With wine and song held common festival; With prayers the palace rang, and loud acclaim, And sadness fled the streets before thv Dame." J. P.
