ild.02 He was not alone, for with him were the two sons of Antenor, Archilochus and Acamas, both skilled in all the arts of war.
ild.02 Acamas and the warrior Peirous commanded the Thracians and those that came from beyond the mighty stream of the Hellespont.
ild.05 He then took his seat on the top of Pergamus, while murderous Mars went about among the ranks of the Trojans, cheering them on, in the likeness of fleet Acamas chief of the Thracians.
ild.06 First, Ajax son of Telamon, tower of strength to the Achaeans, broke a phalanx of the Trojans, and came to the assistance of his comrades by killing Acamas son of Eussorus, the best man among the Thracians, being both brave and of great stature.
ild.11 The Trojans, on the other side upon the rising slope of the plain, were gathered round great Hector, noble Polydamas, Aeneas who was honoured by the Trojans like an immortal, and the three sons of Antenor, Polybus, Agenor, and young Acamas beauteous as a God.
ild.12 Aeneas the valiant son of Anchises led the fourth; he and the two sons of Antenor, Archelochus and Acamas, men well versed in all the arts of war.
ild.14 Acamas then bestrode his brother s body and wounded Promachus the Boeotian with his spear, for he was trying to drag his brother s body away.
ild.14 Acamas vaunted loudly over him saying, Argive" archers, braggarts that you are, toil and suffering shall not be for us only, but some of you too shall fall here as well as ourselves.
ild.14 He sprang towards Acamas, but Acamas did not stand his ground, and he killed Ilioneus son of the rich flock master Phorbas, whom Mercury had favoured and endowed with greater wealth than any other of the Trojans.
ild.16 Meriones gave chase to Acamas on foot and caught him up just as he was about to mount his Chariot; he drove a spear through his right shoulder so that he fell headlong from the car, and his eyes were closed in darkness.

Arise Greece! from thy silent sleep, 2000 years long it is! Forget not, thy ancient culture, beautiful and marvelous it is!
