ILIAD NOUN

ild.20 Dardanus had a son, king Erichthonius, who was wealthiest of all men living; he had three thousand mares that fed by the water meadows, they and their foals with them.
ild.20 Erichthonius begat Tros, king of the Trojans, and Tros had three noble sons, Ilus, Assaracus, and Ganymede who was comeliest of mortal men; wherefore the Gods carried him off to be Jove s cupbearer, for his beauty s sake, that he might dwell among the immortals.

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