ild.02 Peneleos, Leitus, Arcesilaus, Prothoenor, and Clonius were captains of the Boeotians.
ild.02 From these there came Fifty ships, and in each there were a hundred and Twenty young men of the Boeotians.
ild.02 These were they that held Cyparissus, rocky Pytho, holy Crisa, Daulis, and Panopeus; they also that dwelt in Anemorea and Hyampolis, and about the waters of the river Cephissus, and Lilaea by the springs of the Cephissus; with their chieftains came forty ships, and they marshalled the forces of the Phoceans, which were stationed next to the Boeotians, on their left.
ild.05 Who, then, was first and who last to be slain by Mars and Hector? They were valiant Teuthras, and Orestes the renowned Charioteer, Trechus the Aetolian warrior, Oenomaus, Helenus the son of Oenops, and Oresbius of the gleaming girdle, who was possessed of great wealth, and dwelt by the Cephisian lake with the other Boeotians who lived near him, owners of a fertile country.
ild.13 The Boeotians and the Ionians with their long tunics, the Locrians, the men of Phthia, and the famous force of the Epeans could hardly stay Hector as he rushed on towards the ships, nor could they drive him from them, for he was as a wall of fire.
ild.13 These two stood in the van of the Phthians, and defended the ships along with the Boeotians.
ild.15 Hector killed Stichius and Arcesilaus, the one, leader of the Boeotians, and the other, friend and comrade of Menestheus.

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