ILIAD NOUN

ild.02 Mesthles and Antiphus commanded the Meonians, sons of Talaemenes, born to him of the Gygaean lake.
ild.20 Achilles struck him full on the head as he was coming on towards him, and split it clean in two; whereon he fell heavily to the ground and Achilles vaunted over him saying, "You he low, son of Otrynteus, mighty hero; your death is here, but your lineage is on the Gygaean lake where your father s estate lies, by Hyllus, rich in fish, and the eddying waters of Hermus.

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