Were there any specific ancient festivals or times of celebration centered around the Hero Bellerophon?

Pausanias mentioned a shrine to Bellerophon just outside Corinth, but that's all I can find. Obviously they'd have had a festival, but unfortunately we don't have a Corinthian calendar.

Site and shrine-specific observations, yes, undoubtedly – as a major multi-local festival, no.
