2) Acestorides,

the author of four books of mythical stories relating to every city (ton kata polin mythikon) In this he gave many real historical accounts, as well as those which were merely mythical, but he entitled them mythika to avoid calumny and to indicate the pleasant nature of the work. It was compiled from Conon, Apollodorus, Protagoras and others (Phot. Bibl. cod. 189, Tzetz. Chil. vii. 144.)
