Diodorus Siculus 3.62.10
Loeb trans. Oldfather
The tradition that Dionysos was born twice of Zeus arises from the belief that these fruits also perished, in common with all other plants in the Flood at the time of Deucalion, and that when they sprang up again after the Deluge it was as if there had been a second epiphany of the god among men.
And so the myth was created that the god had been born again from the thigh of Zeus. However this may be, those who explain the name Dionysos as signifying the use and importance of the discovery of wine recounted such a myth regarding him.
כאן מיחס דיודורוס את הולדת דיוניסוס השניה למבול דוקא, ולא לימי אלכסנדר.
