ILIAD NOUN

ild.02 These had four leaders, and each of them had Ten ships, with many Epeans on board.
ild.04 Thus the two corpses lay stretched on earth near to one another, the one captain of the Thracians and the other of the Epeans; and many another fell round them.
ild.11 There were many to whom the Epeans owed chattels, for we men of Pylus were few and had been oppressed with wrong; in former years Hercules had come, and had laid his hand heavy upon us, so that all our best men had perished.
ild.11 The Epeans presuming upon all this had looked down upon us and had done us much evil.
ild.11 "Thus did we order all things, and offer sacrifices to the Gods throughout the city; but three days afterwards the Epeans came in a body, many in number, they and their Chariots, in full array, and with them the two Moliones in their armour, though they were still lads and unused to fighting.
ild.11 "The Epeans were beleaguering the city and were determined to take it, but ere this might be there was a desperate fight in store for them.
ild.11 The Epeans fled in all directions when they saw the captain of their Horsemen (the best man they had) laid low, and I swept down on them like a whirlwind, taking Fifty Chariots and in each of them two men bit the dust, slain by my spear.
ild.13 The Boeotians and the Ionians with their long tunics, the Locrians, the men of Phthia, and the famous force of the Epeans could hardly stay Hector as he rushed on towards the ships, nor could they drive him from them, for he was as a wall of fire.
ild.13 The chosen men of the Athenians were in the van, led by Menestheus son of Peteos, with whom were also Pheidas, Stichius, and stalwart Bias: Meges son of Phyleus, Amphion, and Dracius commanded the Epeans, while Medon and staunch Podarces led the men of Phthia.
ild.15 Polydamas killed Otus of Cyllene a comrade of the son of Phyleus and chief of the proud Epeans.
ild.23 Would that I were still young and strong as when the Epeans were burying King Amarynceus in Buprasium, and his sons offered prizes in his honour.
ild.23 There was then none that could vie with me neither of the Epeans nor the Pylians themselves nor the Aetolians.

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