Homer says


“Yea, and if some god shall wreck me in the wine-dark deep,
even so I will endure…
For already have I suffered full much,
and much have I toiled in perils of waves and war.
Let this be added to the tale of those.”


“τρὶς δέ μοι ἐκ χειρῶν σκιῇ εἴκελον ἢ καὶ ὀνείρῳ ἔπτατ'”
μτφρ. και τρεις φορές μες απ᾿ τα χέρια μου σαν όνειρο, σαν ίσκιος
μου πέταξε᾿”
