ILIAD NOUN

ild.06 Then Glaucus son of Hippolochus, and the son of Tydeus went into the open space between the hosts to fight in single combat.
ild.06 And the son of Hippolochus answered, son of Tydeus, why ask me of my lineage? Men come and go as leaves year by year upon the trees.
ild.06 "The king s daughter bore Bellerophon three children, Isander, Hippolochus, and Laodameia.
ild.06 Mars, insatiate of battle, killed his son Isander while he was fighting the Solymi; his daughter was killed by Diana of the Golden reins, for she was angered with her; but Hippolochus was father to myself, and when he sent me to Troy he urged me again and again to fight ever among the foremost and outvie my peers, so as not to shame the blood of my fathers who were the noblest in Ephyra and in all Lycia.
ild.07 Glaucus, moreover, son of Hippolochus, captain of the Lycians, in hard hand to hand fight smote Iphinous son of Dexius on the shoulder, as he was springing on to his Chariot behind his fleet mares; so he fell to earth from the car, and there was no life left in him.
ild.11 Then King Agamemnon took the two sons of Antimachus, Pisander and brave Hippolochus.
ild.11 Hippolochus fled, but him too did Agamemnon smite; he cut off his hands and his head which he sent rolling in among the crowd as though it were a ball.
ild.12 Then he said to Glaucus son of Hippolochus, Glaucus", why in Lycia do we receive especial honour as regards our place at table? Why are the choicest portions served us and our cups kept brimming, and why do men look up to us as though we were Gods? Moreover we hold a large estate by the banks of the river Xanthus, fair with orchard lawns and wheat growing land; it becomes us, therefore, to take our stand at the head of all the Lycians and bear the brunt of the fight, that one may say to another, Our princes in Lycia eat the fat of the land and drink best of wine, but they are fine fellows; they fight well and are ever at the front in battle.
ild.12 Then Teucer wounded Glaucus the brave son of Hippolochus as he was coming on to attack the wall.
ild.17 Then Glaucus son of Hippolochus looked fiercely at Hector and rebuked him sternly.

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