According to Ephorus: When Cresphontes took Messenia, he divided it into five cities; and so, since Stenyclarus was situated in the center of this country, he designated it as a royal residence for himself, while as for the others--Pylus, Rhium, Mesola, and Hyameitis--he sent kings to them, after conferring on all the Messenians equal rights with the Dorians.
