of Attica and divided his people into
nobles, landowners, and creators.
He defeated the Amazons and the Centaurs.
King of the Myrmidons of Fthia.
Son of Peleus and Nereid Thetis,
student of the centaur Chiron.
The wrath of Achilles against Agamemnon

at Thermopylae. «Molon Lave» (come and take them)
