Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol VIII:
Pseudo-Clementine Literature.: Chapter XXI

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter XXI.—Their Graves are Still to Be Seen.

“For instance, as I have mentioned already, in the Caucasian mountains there is shown the tomb of a certain Kronos, a man, and a fierce monarch who slew his children.  And the son of this man, called Zeus, became worse than his father; and having by the power of magic been declared ruler of the universe, he committed many adulteries, and inflicted punishment on his father and uncles, and so died; and the Cretans show his tomb.  And in Mesopotamia there lie buried a certain Helios at Atir, and a certain Selene at Carrhæ.  A certain Hermes, a man, lies buried in Egypt; Ares in Thrace; Aphrodite in Cyprus; Æsculapius in Epidaurus; and the tombs of many other such persons are to be seen. 1077
