ILIAD NOUN

ild.02 With them in command was Euryalus, son of king Mecisteus, son of Talaus; but Diomed was chief over them all.
ild.06 Euryalus killed Dresus and Opheltius, and then went in pursuit of Aesepus and Pedasus, whom the naiad nymph Abarbarea had borne to noble Bucolion.
ild.23 They all held their peace, and no man rose save Euryalus son of Mecisteus, who was son of Talaus.
ild.23 The son of Tydeus was Euryalus s second, cheering him on and hoping heartily that he would win.
ild.23 Presently Epeus came on and gave Euryalus a blow on the jaw as he was looking round; Euryalus could not keep his legs; they gave way under him in a moment and he sprang up with a bound, as a fish leaps into the air near some shore that is all bestrewn with sea wrack, when Boreas furs the top of the waves, and then falls back into deep water.

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