ild.02 Those again who held Pelasgic Argos, Alos, Alope, and Trachis; and those of Phthia and Hellas the land of fair Women, who were called Myrmidons, Hellenes, and Achaeans; these had Fifty ships, over which Achilles was in command.
ild.09 If the Gods spare me to return home, Peleus will find me a wife; there are Achaean Women in Hellas and Phthia, daughters of kings that have cities under them; of these I can take whom I will and marry her.
ild.09 Therefore, my son, I will not stay here without you no, not though heaven itself vouchsafe to strip my years from off me, and make me young as I was when I first left Hellas the land of fair Women.
ild.09 I then fled through Hellas till I came to fertile Phthia, mother of Sheep, and to King Peleus, who made me welcome and treated me as a father treats an only son who will be heir to all his wealth.
ild.16 Glaucus, captain of the Lycians, was the first to rally them, by killing Bathycles son of Chalcon who lived in Hellas and was the richest man among the Myrmidons.

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