ILIAD NOUN

ild.04 These were inspired of Mars, but the others by Minerva and with them came Panic, Rout, and Strife whose fury never tires, sister and friend of murderous Mars, who, from being at first but low in stature, grows till she uprears her head to heaven, though her feet are still on earth.
ild.05 her shoulders, wreathed round with Rout as with a fringe, and on it were Strife, and Strength, and Panic whose blood runs cold; moreover there was the head of the dread monster Gorgon,, grim and awful to behold, portent of aegis bearing Jove.
ild.09 But Panic, comrade of blood stained Rout, had taken fast hold of the Achaeans and their princes were all of them in despair.
ild.11 On the body of the shield there were Twenty bosses of white tin, with another of dark cyanus in the middle: this last was made to show a Gorgon s head, fierce and grim, with Rout and Panic on either side.
ild.13 As when baneful Mars sallies forth to battle, and his son Panic so strong and dauntless goes with him, to strike terror even into the heart of a hero the pair have gone from Thrace to arm themselves among the Ephyri or the brave Phlegyans, but they will not listen to both the contending hosts, and will give victory to one side or to the other even so did Meriones and Idomeneus, captains of men, go out to battle clad in their Bronze armour.
ild.15 As he spoke he gave orders to yoke his Horses Panic and Rout, while he put on his armour.

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