ILIAD NOUN

ild.02 Thoas, son of Andraemon, commanded the Aetolians, who dwelt in Pleuron, Olenus, Pylene, Chalcis by the sea, and rocky Calydon, for the great king Oeneus had now no sons living, and was himself dead, as was also golden haired Meleager, who had been set over the Aetolians to be their king.
ild.09 The Curetes and the Aetolians were fighting and killing one another round Calydon the Aetolians defending the city and the Curetes trying to destroy it.
ild.09 "Then was heard the din of battle about the gates of Calydon, and the dull thump of the battering against their walls.
ild.09 They bade him choose Fifty plough gates, the most fertile in the plain of Calydon, the one half vineyard and the other open plough land.
ild.13 Neptune spoke in the likeness and with the voice of Thoas son of Andraemon who ruled the Aetolians of all Pleuron and high Calydon, and was honoured among his people as though he were a God.
ild.14 For Portheus had three noble sons, two of whom, Agrius and Melas, abode in Pleuron and rocky Calydon.
