The first-born son of ‘Hecuba’ was the descendant of Dardanus (who'd lived under Mount Ida) and Tros founder of Troy. 'Hecuba' was the daughter of King Dymas (of Phrygia) and Eunoe' the daughter of "Sangartus" the river-god. The God's were much grieved in the loss of such a great personage as the warrior Hector the son of King Priam of Troy. Thus they'd consoled themselves by taking an essence of the spirit from the great warrior king which they turned into a water buffalo that was sided with another oxen named “Isomos” who may be seen as intertwining with the story of 'Itherther' from Algiers. . .

     "But they whose lot it is to be born under the Centaur of double form delight in yoking a team, in bringing a fiery horse to obey the pliant reins, in following herds which graze all over the grasslands, and in imposing a master on every kind of quadruped and taming them: they soften tigers, rid the lion of his fierceness, speak to the elephant and through speech adapt its huge bulk to human skill in a variety of displays. Indeed in the stars of this constellation the human form's blended with a beast that is placed above it wherefore it has lordship over other beasts. And because it carries a shaft poised on drawn bow, it imparts strength to limb and keenness to the intellect, swiftness of movement and an indefatigable spirit."

[Manilius, Astronomica, 1st century AD, book 4, p.241.]




Pygmachia "fist fighting" πυγμαχία Boksa
Subtitle: Accents from the Greek mountains. . .
The Olympian form of boxing was known as 'political farce' or the prefabricated element of challenge. Whose moniker-politico wasn't from a fear of conflict or the abrasions of a conflicting challenge but rather an inapt abhorrence towards the loss of one's identity. . .
