Excerpt from Description of Grece, Vol. 2: Translated Into English With Notes and Index

Now the country between Elis and Sicyonia which borders on the Corinthian Gulf is called in our day Achaia from its inhabitants, but in ancient times was called. ?gialus and its inhabitants ?gialians, according to the tradition of the Sicyonians from ?gialeus, who was king of what is now Sicyonia, others say from the position of the country which is mostly on the sea-shore. After the death of Hellen his sons chased their brother Xuthus out of Thessaly, accusing him of having privately helped himself to their father's money. And he fled to Athens, and was thought worthy to marry the daughter of Erechtheus, and he had by her two sons Achseus and Ion. After the death of Erechtheus he was chosen to decide which of his sons should be king, and, because he decided in favour of Cecrops the eldest, the other sons of Erechtheus drove him out of the country: and he went to ?gialus and there lived and died. And of his sons Achseus took an army from ?gialus and Athens and returned to Thessaly, and took possession of the throne of his ancestors, and Ion, while gathering together an army against the ?gialians and their king Selinus, received messengers from Selinus offering him his only child Helice in marriage, and adopting him as his son and heir.
