ILIAD NOUN

ild.02 Thoas, son of Andraemon, commanded the Aetolians, who dwelt in Pleuron, Olenus, Pylene, Chalcis by the sea, and rocky Calydon, for the great king Oeneus had now no sons living, and was himself dead, as was also golden haired Meleager, who had been set over the Aetolians to be their king.
ild.05 He was in the act of stripping huge Periphas, son of Ochesius and bravest of the Aetolians.
ild.09 The Curetes and the Aetolians were fighting and killing one another round Calydon the Aetolians defending the city and the Curetes trying to destroy it.
ild.09 On this the Goddess set the Curetes and the Aetolians fighting furiously about the head and skin of the boar.
ild.09 Thereon the elders of the Aetolians besought Meleager; they sent the chiefest of their priests, and begged him to come out and help them, promising him a great reward.
ild.09 Thus of his own inward motion he saved the city of the Aetolians; but they now gave him nothing of those rich rewards that they had offered earlier, and though he saved the city he took nothing by it.
ild.13 Neptune spoke in the likeness and with the voice of Thoas son of Andraemon who ruled the Aetolians of all Pleuron and high Calydon, and was honoured among his people as though he were a God.
ild.15 Then spoke Thoas son of Andraemon, leader of the Aetolians, a man who could throw a good throw, and who was staunch also in close fight, while few could surpass him in debate when opinions were divided.
ild.23 There was then none that could vie with me neither of the Epeans nor the Pylians themselves nor the Aetolians.

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