ILIAD NOUN

ild.02 These were commanded by Tlepolemus, son of Hercules by Astyochea, whom he had carried off from Ephyra, on the river Selleis, after sacking many cities of valiant warriors.
ild.06 There is a city in the heart of Argos, pasture land of Horses, called Ephyra, where Sisyphus lived, who was the craftiest of all mankind.
ild.06 Mars, insatiate of battle, killed his son Isander while he was fighting the Solymi; his daughter was killed by Diana of the Golden reins, for she was angered with her; but Hippolochus was father to myself, and when he sent me to Troy he urged me again and again to fight ever among the foremost and outvie my peers, so as not to shame the blood of my fathers who were the noblest in Ephyra and in all Lycia.
ild.15 He then struck the middle of the son of Phyleus shield with his spear, setting on him at close quarters, but his good corslet made with plates of metal saved him; Phyleus had brought it from Ephyra and the river Selleis, where his host, King Euphetes, had given it him to wear in battle and protect him.

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