στρατός (στρώννυ_μι), gen. στρατόφιν: army, host, Od. 2.30. In the Iliad στρατός is the encamped army of the Greeks before Troy, the 1186 ships, with streets throughout the camp, Il. 10.66. The tents or barracks stood parallel with the ships, and opposite the intervals between them, Il. 15.653 ff. At first the camp had no wall, the presence of Achilles rendering such defence needless, but after his withdrawal from warfare, by the advice of Nestor (Il. 7.436-441), a massive wall was built, with gates and towers, Il. 12.118-123.
