ILIAD NOUN

ild.02 Chromis, and Ennomus the augur, led the Mysians, but his skill in augury availed not to save him from destruction, for he fell by the hand of the fleet descendant of Aeacus in the river, where he slew others also of the Trojans.
ild.10 The Lysians and proud Mysians, with the Phrygians and Meonians, have their place on the side towards Thymbra; but why ask about an this? If you want to find your way into the host of the Trojans, there are the Thracians, who have lately come here and lie apart from the others at the far end of the camp; and they have Rhesus son of Eioneus for their king.
ild.13 NOW when Jove had thus brought Hector and the Trojans to the ships, he left them to their never ending toil, and turned his keen eyes away, looking elsewhither towards the Horse breeders of Thrace, the Mysians, fighters at close quarters, the noble Hippemolgi, who live on milk, and the Abians, justest of mankind.
ild.14 Ajax son of Telamon was first to wound Hyrtius son of Gyrtius, captain of the staunch Mysians.
ild.24 This done, they brought from the store chamber the rich ransom that was to purchase the body of Hector, and they set it all orderly on the waggon; then they yoked the strong harness Mules which the Mysians had on a time given as a goodly present to Priam; but for Priam himself they yoked Horses which the old king had bred, and kept for own use.

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