I feel I should mention that Herodotus specifically refers to the Cepheus of the Perseus Legend (Thou he spells it as beginning with a K rather then a C) as being the Son of Belos. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 06:27, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
The last sentence gets the chronology mixed up. Cepheus agrees to let Perseus marry Andromeda as a reward for rescuing her; her former fiance Phineus attacks Perseus, and Perseus turns him to stone in self-defense. At least that's Ovid's version. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 11:04, 15 July 2014 (UTC)
