All these to battle fared with warrior-souled
Penthesileia: even as when descends
Dawn from Olympus’ crest of adamant,
Dawn, heart-exultant in her radiant steeds
Amidst the bright-haired Hours; and o’er them all,
How flawless-fair soever these may be,
Her splendour of beauty glows pre-eminent;
So peerless amid all the Amazons Unto
Troy-town Penthesileia came.
Penthesileia has always been fascinating to me. Who are your favorites from the Trojan War?
Cheers & Happy Reading!
