Plutarch, Life of Nikias 7

“The women were celebrating at that time the festival of Adonis, and in many places throughout the city little images of the god were laid our for burial, and funeral rites were held about them, with wailing cries of women, so that those who cared anything for such matters were distressed.” – Plutarch, Life of Nikias 7
