ILIAD NOUN

ild.06 When he had received the wicked letter he first commanded Bellerophon to kill that savage monster, the Chimaera, who was not a human being, but a Goddess, for she had the head of a Lion and the tail of a Serpent, while her body was that of a Goat, and she breathed forth flames of fire; but Bellerophon slew her, for he was guided by signs from heaven.
ild.16 Thus did these two noble comrades of Sarpedon go down to Erebus slain by the two sons of Nestor; they were the warrior sons of Amisodorus, who had reared the invincible Chimaera, to the bane of many.

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