the springs of Sperchios
Struck on his heel, the demigod Achilles, just before his last breath, remembers
the last words of his father, Pileas and talks to himself:
«…Sperchios, my father unfairly promised you that,
when I return there, in my homeland, for your sake,
I would cut my hair and I would offer you sacred, rich sacrifice,
and that I would slaughter fifty strong rams on your springs,
where there is a temple and a fragrant altar...»
