ild.02 Of these brave Protesilaus had been captain while he was yet alive, but he was now lying under the earth.
ild.02 Still, though his people mourned their chieftain, they were not without a leader, for Podarces, of the race of Mars, marshalled them; he was son of Iphiclus, rich in Sheep, who was the son of Phylacus, and he was own brother to Protesilaus, only younger, Protesilaus being at once the elder and the more valiant.
ild.13 It was here that the ships of Ajax and Protesilaus were drawn up by the sea shore; here the wall was at its lowest, and the fight both of man and Horse raged most fiercely.
ild.15 Then Hector seized the stern of the good ship that had brought Protesilaus to Troy, but never bore him back to his native land.
ild.16 THUS did they fight about the ship of Protesilaus.
ild.16 Patroclus first aimed a spear into the middle of the press where men were packed most closely, by the stern of the ship of Protesilaus.

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