ILIAD NOUN

ild.13 He sought Cassandra the fairest of Priam s daughters in marriage, but offered no gifts of wooing, for he promised a great thing, to wit, that he would drive the sons of the Achaeans willy nilly from Troy; old King Priam had given his consent and promised her to him, whereon he fought on the strength of the promises thus made to him.
ild.24 No one neither man nor Woman saw them, till Cassandra, fair as Golden Venus standing on Pergamus, caught sight of her dear father in his Chariot, and his servant that was the city s herald with him.

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