ild.06 He did not find Andromache, for she was on the wall with her child and one of her maids, weeping bitterly.
ild.06 Seeing, then, that she was not within, he stood on the threshold of the Women s rooms and said, Women", tell me, and tell me true, where did Andromache go when she left the house? Was it to my sisters, or to my brothers wives? or is she at the temple of Minerva where the other Women are propitiating the awful Goddess?"
ild.06 When he had gone through the city and had reached the Scaean gates through which he would go out on to the plain, his wife came running towards him, Andromache, daughter of great Eetion who ruled in Thebe under the wooded slopes of Mt.
ild.06 Hector smiled as he looked upon the boy, but he did not speak, and Andromache stood by him weeping and taking his hand in her own.
ild.08 Then he cried to his Horses, Xanthus" and Podargus, and you Aethon and goodly Lampus, pay me for your keep now and for all the honey sweet corn with which Andromache daughter of great Eetion has fed you, and for she has mixed wine and water for you to drink whenever you would, before doing so even for me who am her own husband.
ild.17 I do indeed endow you with great might now, but as against this you shall not return from battle to lay the armour of the son of Peleus before Andromache.
ild.24 Foremost among them all Andromache led their wailing as she clasped the head of mighty Hector in her embrace.

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