ild.02 And those that held Phylace and the flowery meadows of Pyrasus, sanctuary of Ceres; Iton, the mother of Sheep; Antrum upon the sea, and Pteleum that lies upon the grass lands.
ild.05 As the breezes sport with the chaff upon some goodly threshing floor, when men are winnowing while yellow Ceres blows with the wind to sift the chaff from the grain, and the chaff heaps grow whiter and whiter even so did the Achaeans whiten in the dust which the Horses hoofs raised to the firmament of heaven, as their drivers turned them back to battle, and they bore down with might upon the foe.
ild.13 Great Ajax son of Telamon will yield to no man who is in mortal mould and eats the grain of Ceres, if Bronze and great stones can overthrow him.
ild.14 There was queen Ceres again, and lovely Leto, and yourself but with none of these was I ever so much enamoured as I now am with you.

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