ILIAD NOUN

ild.23 Next to him, yellow haired Menelaus son of Atreus rose and yoked his fleet Horses, Agamemnon s mare Aethe, and his own Horse Podargus.
ild.23 I do not bid you try to beat the steeds of the son of Tydeus, for Minerva has put running into them, and has covered Diomed with glory; but you must overtake the Horses of the son of Atreus and not be left behind, or Aethe who is so fleet will taunt you.
ild.23 He had soon caught him up again, for Agamemnon s mare Aethe kept pulling stronger and stronger, so that if the course had been longer he would have passed him, and there would not even have been a dead heat.

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