    But then they get conquered by Heracles and Theseus and he takes Hippolyta back off to Athens.
    But they still existed over a thousand years later because Alexander the Great met them. There were also a separate branch of them in Libya too, who lived near a people called the Atlantoi.

    I think the story of the Libyan Amazons comes from Diodorus.
