ILIAD NOUN

ild.02 And those that held Pherae by the Boebean lake, with Boebe, Glaphyrae, and the populous city of Iolcus, these with their Eleven ships were led by Eumelus, son of Admetus, whom Alcestis bore to him, loveliest of the daughters of Pelias.
ild.23 First among them all uprose Eumelus, king of men, son of Admetus, a man excellent in Horsemanship.
ild.23 Minerva saw the trick which Apollo had played the son of Tydeus, so she brought him his whip and put spirit into his Horses; moreover she went after the son of Admetus in a rage and broke his yoke for him; the mares went one to one side the course, and the other to the other, and the pole was broken against the ground.
ild.23 Last of them all came the son of Admetus, dragging his Chariot and driving his Horses on in front.

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