ILIAD NOUN

ild.02 They that held Adresteia and the land of Apaesus, with Pityeia, and the high mountain of Tereia these were led by Adrestus and Amphius, whose breastplate was of linen.
ild.05 Then shall his brave wife Aegialeia, daughter of Adrestus, rouse her whole house from sleep, wailing for the loss of her wedded lord, Diomed the bravest of the Achaeans.
ild.06 Then Menelaus of the loud war cry took Adrestus alive, for his Horses ran into a tamarisk bush, as they were flying wildly over the plain, and broke the pole from the car; they went on towards the city along with the others in full flight, but Adrestus rolled out, and fell in the dust flat on his face by the wheel of his Chariot; Menelaus came up to him spear in hand, but Adrestus caught him by the knees begging for his life.
ild.06 Menelaus, therefore, thrust Adrestus from him, whereon King Agamemnon struck him in the flank, and he fell: then the son of Atreus planted his foot upon his breast to draw his spear from the body.
ild.16 Who then first, and who last, was slain by you, O Patroclus, when the Gods had now called you to meet your doom? First Adrestus, Autonous, Echeclus, Perimus the son of Megas, Epistor and Melanippus; after these he killed Elasus, Mulius, and Pylartes.
ild.23 Therefore, my dear son, mind well what you are about, for if you can be first to round the post there is no chance of any one giving you the goby later, not even though you had Adrestus s Horse Arion behind you Horse which is of divine race or those of Laomedon, which are the noblest in this country.

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