Source Notes: I have been unable to find the exact translation that this line comes from, but it is similar to idea to the line in every translation I searched ranging from 1717 to early 2010s. If you have the original source for this translation please leave a comment, thank you! Also not that Kalchas Theostoridis is also translated as Calchas son of Theostor.
