Lemnos (Greece) (search for this): card 281
KLUTAIMNESTRA. Hephaistos -- sending a bright blaze from Ide. Beacon did beacon send, from fire the poster, Hitherward: Ide to the rock Hermaian Of Lemnos: and a third great torch o' the island Zeus' seat received in turn, the Athoan summit. And, -- so upsoaring as to stride sea over, The strong lamp-voyager, and all for joyance -- Did the gold-glorious splendour, any sun like, Pass on -- the pine-tree -- to Makistos' watch-place; Who did not, -- tardy, -- caught, no wits about him, By sleep, -- decline his portion of the missive. And far the beacon's light, on stream Euripos Arriving, made aware Messapios' warders, And up they lit in turn, played herald onwards, Kindling with flame a heap of grey old heather.

Then did it dart until it reached the outpost Mount Arachnaios here, the city's neighbour; And then darts to this roof of the Atreidai This light of Ide's fire not unforefathered! Such are the rules prescribed the flambeau-bearers: He beats that's first and also last in running. Such is the proof and token I declare thee, My husband having sent me news from Troia. CHOROS. The gods, indeed, anon will I pray, woman! But now, these words to hear, and sate my wonder Thoroughly, I am fain -- if twice thou tell them.
