ild.16 Menesthius of the gleaming corslet, son to the river Spercheius that streams from heaven, was captain of the first company.
ild.16 Fair Polydora daughter of Peleus bore him to ever flowing Spercheius a Woman mated with a God but he was called son of Borus son of Perieres, with whom his mother was living as his wedded wife, and who gave great wealth to gain her.
ild.23 He went a space away from the pyre, and cut off the yellow lock which he had let grow for the river Spercheius.
ild.23 He looked all sorrowfully out upon the dark sea, and said, Spercheius", in vain did my father Peleus vow to you that when I returned home to my loved native land I should cut off this lock and offer you a holy Hecatomb; Fifty she Goats was I to sacrifice to you there at your springs, where is your grove and your altar fragrant with burnt offerings.

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