5th century BCE编辑
During the Peloponnesian War rumors spread among the farmers of Lakonia that King Lykaon himself had returned to harass them. These rumors eventually reached the Two Kings of Sparta, and King Archidamos demanded that the misthios Kassandra hunt down the beast.
King Archidamos was not the only one who wished to see the wolf slain: the leader of the Daughters of Artemis at the time, Daphnae, also wished Kassandra to kill the beast as a proof of her skills. Kassandra did as asked, taking the wolf's head to Archidamos in Sparta, and the wolf's pelt to Daphnae in Chios.
