A description of the experience

From "A Companion to Families in the Greek and Roman Worlds,"  - Beryl Rawson,

Some families are characterized by birthmarks which are passed on generation after generation and used to prove one's descent and share of particular qualities. According to several sources, Justin among them (15.4.3–9)

“Seleucos, founder of the Secloid Dynasty was the son of Apollo and an anchor shaped mark on his thigh, as well as on his children and grandchildren's was a reminder of their divine origin."
