“Sing, goddess, the rage of Achilleus Pelides”. Here was a fun one. First line of the Iliad. If anyone’s wondering, I started with a Lattimore translation and adapted it, keeping Pelides and changing “anger” to “rage” because I think it sounds cooler.
ILIUM was a city located in modern day Turkey, better known as Troy. The city was brought to its knees and razed to the ground after a ten year long battle with the Greeks that is immortalised in Homer’s Iliad.
