ILIAD NOUN

ild.02 Tlepolemus, son of Hercules, a man both brave and large of stature, brought Nine ships of lordly warriors from Rhodes.
ild.02 These dwelt in Rhodes which is divided among the three cities of Lindus, Ielysus, and Cameirus, that lies upon the chalk.
ild.02 during which he suffered great hardship, he came to Rhodes, where the people divided into three communities, according to their tribes, and were dearly loved by Jove, the lord, of Gods and men; wherefore the son of Saturn showered down great riches upon them.

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