ILIAD NOUN

ild.06 He it was that drove the nursing Women who were in charge of frenzied Bacchus through the land of Nysa, and they flung their thyrsi on the ground as murderous Lycurgus beat them with his oxgoad.
ild.06 Bacchus himself plunged terror stricken into the sea, and Thetis took him to her bosom to comfort him, for he was scared by the fury with which the man reviled him.
ild.14 Then there was the daughter of Phoenix, who bore me Minos and Rhadamanthus: there was Semele, and Alcmena in Thebes by whom I begot my Lion hearted son Hercules, while Semele became mother to Bacchus the comforter of mankind.

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