ILIAD NOUN

ild.02 They were gathered in assembly, old and young, at Priam s gates, and Iris came close up to Priam, speaking with the voice of Priam s son Polites, who, being fleet of foot, was stationed as watchman for the Trojans on the tomb of old Aesyetes, to look out for any sally of the Achaeans.
ild.13 Then Polites, own brother of Deiphobus passed his arms around his waist, and bore him away from the battle till he got to his Horses that were standing in the rear of the fight with the Chariot and their driver.
ild.15 Polydamas killed Mecisteus, and Polites Echius, in the front of the battle, while Agenor slew Clonius.
ild.24 Then he called to his sons, upbraiding Helenus, Paris, noble Agathon, Pammon, Antiphonus, Polites of the loud battle cry, Deiphobus, Hippothous, and Dius.

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