ild.02 Agamemnon, king of men, sacrificed a fat Five year old Bull to the mighty son of Saturn, and invited the princes and elders of his host.
ild.07 When they reached the quarters of the son of Atreus, Agamemnon sacrificed for them a Five year old Bull in honour of Jove the son of Saturn.

ild.12 Then they formed themselves into companies, made themselves ready, and in Five bodies followed their leaders.
ild.16 Over these he set Five captains whom he could trust, while he was himself commander over them all.
ild.18 He made the shield in Five thicknesses, and with many a wonder did his cunning hand enrich it.
ild.20 It went through two layers, but the God had made the shield in Five, two of Bronze, the two innermost ones of tin, and one of Gold; it was in this that the spear was stayed.

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