'Some of the Egyptians were made kings by the Athenians. For Petes, the father of Menestheus who participated in the expendition against Troy, was manifestly Egyptian who became later citizen of Athens and the kingship.................becoming himself dual-natured. And The Athenians not being able to attribute the real causes of this particular nature, being involved in the common affairs of two states, Greece and barbarian, he was thought to be dual-natured, having a part of a beast and the other of human.' From Diodoros' of Sicily Library of History. Book 1:28(7).
