This aition relates how the Argonauts, stopping at the harbor at Cyzicus for water, left an anchor stone on the shore and replaced it with a heavier one. The stone was subsequently dedicated to Athena. The story was also related in the Argonautica (1.953-6) as an event that occurred at the beginning of the voyage.

"On your shores, too, Panormus, the Argo landed, and your water"
He says that the Argonauts, when they
went ashore to fetch water at Cyzicus, left behind
the stone that they used to anchor there because
it was too light— and that later5
it was dedicated to Athena— and they took another
(stone) which was heavier.
