'On this mountain (Helicon), which is one of the most fertile in Greece, is the grove of the Muses, above which flows the Hippocrene or horse's fountain. It is so named because the horse of Bellerophon, called Pegasos, caused it to spring forth by striking the earth with his hoof. The river Permessos flows round the mountain and all the environs of the grove are thickly inhabited.' From The Travels of Antenor in Greece and Asia. Antenor pays a visit to Mount Helicon.
