Dionysius of Halicarnassus (1.28.1) indeed does cite a tradition that the supposed founder of the Etruscan settlements was Tyrrhenus the son of Heracles by Omphale the Lydian who drove out the Pelasgians of Italy from the cities north of the Tiber river.
A simpler genealogy is likely to have made Agron, as a legendary first king of an ancient dynasty, to be a son of the mythical Ninus son of Belus and have stopped at that point.
That, at least is the interpretation of later chronographers who also ignored Herodotus' statement that Agron was the first to be a king and included Alcaeus, Belus, and Ninus in their List of Kings of Lydia.

The real reason that Semiramis, the wife of Ninus, gained the glory of finishing the fortifications of Babylon, was, that she came in the esteem of the ancient idolaters to hold a preponderating position, and to have attributed to her all the different characters that belonged, or were supposed to belong, to her husband.
As the genuine copies of Eusebius do not admit of any Belus, as an actual king of Assyria, prior to Ninus, king of the Babylonians, and distinct from him, that shows that Ninus, the first king of Babylon, was Kronos.

The earliest reference to the Seven Sages of Ancient Greece is in Plato's Protagoras in which he listed seven names: 'A man's ability to utter such remarks [notable, short and compressed] is to be ascribed to his perfect education.
Diogenes recorded that 'Thales was the first to receive the name of Sage in the archonship of Damasias at Athens, when the term was applied to all the Seven Sages, as Demetrius of Phalerum [born.
Many commentators state that Thales was named as Sage because of the practical advice he gave to Miletus in particular, and to Ionia in general.
