The Sibyl of Cumae

This question is directed at those of you familiar with Classical (Greek/Roman) literature. I would like to know which original sources specific aspects of the story of the Sibyl of Cumae originated in. The particular points that I am most concerned with are as follows: 1) Sibyl's involvement with Apollo 2) Sibyl in a hanging cage stating, "I want to die" 3) Sibyl's sale of her prophecies to the last Roman king. I'm familiar with the basic story, but I'm having difficulty remembering which parts came from the Aeneid versus the Satyricon versus other sources I'm failing to recall. Thanks in advance to anyone who can provide relevant information.
