ild.02 The men of Argos, again, and those who held the walls of Tiryns, with Hermione, and Asine upon the gulf; Troezene, Eionae, and the vineyard lands of Epidaurus; the Achaean youths, moreover, who came from Aegina and Mases; these were led by Diomed of the loud battle cry, and Sthenelus son of famed Capaneus.
ild.04 Presently he saw the son of Tydeus, noble Diomed, standing by his Chariot and Horses, with Sthenelus the son of Capaneus beside him; whereon he began to upbraid him.
ild.05 Thus did he vaunt; but his arrow had not killed Diomed, who withdrew and made for the Chariot and Horses of Sthenelus, the son of Capaneus.
ild.05 Sthenelus sprang from his Chariot, and drew the arrow from the wound, whereon the blood came spouting out through the hole that had been made in his shirt.
ild.05 Sthenelus, son of Capaneus, saw them coming and said to Diomed, "Diomed, son of Tydeus, man after my own heart, I see two heroes speeding towards you, both of them men of might the one a skilful archer, Pandarus son of Lycaon, the other, Aeneas, whose sire is Anchises, while his mother is Venus.
ild.05 With this she caught hold of Sthenelus and lifted him off the Chariot on to the ground.
ild.08 Thereon the doughty squires, Sthenelus and kind hearted Eurymedon, saw to Nestor s Horses, while the two both mounted Diomed s Chariot.
ild.09 Nay though these too should turn homeward with their ships, Sthenelus and myself will still fight on till we reach the goal of Ilius, for for heaven was with us when we came.
ild.19 For Juno darted down from the high summit of Olympus, and went in haste to Achaean Argos where she knew that the noble wife of Sthenelus son of Perseus then was.
ild.19 There is a fine child born this day, Eurystheus, son to Sthenelus the son of Perseus; he is of your lineage; it is well, therefore, that he should reign over the Argives.
ild.23 Forthwith he sprang from his goodly Chariot, and leaned his whip against his Horses yoke; brave Sthenelus now lost no time, but at once brought on the prize, and gave the Woman and the ear handled cauldron to his comrades to take away.

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