ILIAD NOUN

ild.11 Then King Agamemnon took the two sons of Antimachus, Pisander and brave Hippolochus.
ild.11 It was Antimachus who had been foremost in preventing Helen s being restored to Menelaus, for he was largely bribed by Alexandrus; and now Agamemnon took his two sons, both in the same Chariot, trying to bring their Horses to a stand for they had lost hold of the reins and the Horses were mad with fear.
ild.11 Our father Antimachus has great store of Gold, Bronze, and wrought iron, and from this he will satisfy you with a very large ransom should he hear of our being alive at the ships of the Achaeans.
ild.11 "If," said Agamemnon, "you are sons of Antimachus, who once at a council of Trojans proposed that Menelaus and Ulysses, who had come to you as envoys, should be killed and not suffered to return, you shall now pay for the foul iniquity of your father.
ild.12 Leonteus, of the race of Mars, killed Hippomachus the son of Antimachus by striking him with his spear upon the girdle.

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