Historical Notes:

According to Callinus, a 7th century BC poet from Ephesus, Hamaxitos was founded by Teucrian Cretans who were told by an oracle to settle where they were attacked by the 'earth-born'.  When at the area of Hamaxitos, a great horde of field mice ate all their leather equipment, and accordingly, they raised their city there.
