ILIAD NOUN

ild.02 Pyraechmes led the Paeonian archers from distant Amydon, by the broad waters of the river Axius, the fairest that flow upon the earth.
ild.16 He hit Pyraechmes who had led his Paeonian Horsemen from the Amydon and the broad waters of the river Axius; the spear struck him on the right shoulder, and with a groan he fell backwards in the dust; on this his men were thrown into confusion, for by killing their leader, who was the finest soldier among them, Patroclus struck panic into them all.
ild.21 He was son to the broad river Axius and Periboea eldest daughter of Acessamenus; for the river had lain with her.
ild.21 I am of the blood of the river Axius of Axius that is the fairest of all rivers that run.

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