Argos (Greece) (search for this): card 48
a When they have set sail from Ilium for their homes. On them will Zeus also send his rain and fearful hail, and inky tempests from the sky; and he promises to grant me his thunder-bolts to hurl on the Achaeans and fire their ships. And you, for your part, make the Aegean strait to roar with mighty billows and whirlpools, and fill Euboea's hollow bay with corpses, that Achaeans may learn henceforth to reverence my temples and regard all other deities. Poseidon So shall it be, for this favor needs only a few words. I will vex the broad Aegean sea; and the beach of Myconos and the reefs round Delos, Scyros and Lemnos too, and the cliffs of Caphareus shall be strewn with many a corpse. You go to Olympus, and taking from your father's hand his lightning bolts, keep careful watch against the hour when Argos' army lets slip its cables. A fool is he who sacks the towns of men, with shrines and tombs, the dead man's hallowed home, for at the last he makes a desert round himself and dies.

Troy (Turkey) (search for this): card 48
Athena May I address the mighty god whom the gods revere and who to my own father is very near in blood, laying aside our former enmity? Poseidon You may; for over the soul the ties of kin exert no feeble spell, great queen Athena. Athena For your forgiving mood my thanks! I have messages to impart affecting both yourself and me, lord. Poseidon Do you bring fresh tidings from some god, from Zeus, or from some lesser power? Athena From none of these; but on behalf of Troy, whose soil we tread, I have come to seek your mighty aid, to make it one with mine. Poseidon What! have you laid your former hate aside to take compassion on the town now that it is burnt to ashes? Athena First go back to the former point; will you make common cause with me in the scheme I purpose? Poseidon Yes, surely; but I want to learn your wishes, whether you have come to help Achaeans or Phrygians. Athena I wish to give my former foes, the Trojans, joy, and on the Achaean army impose a bitter retur

Ilium (Turkey) (search for this): card 48
na Do you not know the insult done to me and to the shrine I love? Poseidon I do: when Aias dragged away Cassandra by force. Athena Yes, and the Achaeans did nothing, said nothing to him. Poseidon And yet it was by your mighty aid they sacked Ilium. Athena For which cause I would join with you to do them harm. Poseidon My powers are ready at your will. What is your intent? Athena I will impose on them a return that is no return. Poseidon While they stay on shore, or as they cross the salt sea? Athena When they have set sail from Ilium for their homes. On them will Zeus also send his rain and fearful hail, and inky tempests from the sky; and he promises to grant me his thunder-bolts to hurl on the Achaeans and fire their ships.
