ILIAD NOUN

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.

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