ILIAD NOUN

ild.01 Thus all day long the young men worshipped the God with song, hymning him and chaunting the joyous paean, and the God took pleasure in their voices; but when the sun went down, and it came on dark, they laid themselves down to sleep by the stern cables of the ship, and when the child of morning, rosy fingered Dawn, appeared they again set sail for the host of the Achaeans.
ild.02 The Goddess Dawn now wended her way to vast Olympus that she might herald day to Jove and to the other immortals, and Agamemnon sent the criers round to call the people in assembly; so they called them and the people gathered thereon.
ild.11 AND now as Dawn rose from her couch beside Tithonus, harbinger of light alike to mortals and immortals, Jove sent fierce Discord with the ensign of war in her hands to the ships of the Achaeans.
ild.19 NOW when Dawn in robe of saffron was hasting from the streams of Oceanus, to bring light to mortals and immortals, Thetis reached the ships with the armour that the God had given her.
ild.23 At length as the Morning Star was beginning to herald the light which saffron mantled Dawn was soon to suffuse over the sea, the flames fell and the fire began to die.

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