Page issues[edit]

Surely this is not an accurate quote "to lord it over the Myrmidons". Can somebody fix it? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 206.21.164.77 (talk) 23:41, 25 September 2013 (UTC)

The quotation is accurate -- it's from Samuel Butler's 1898 translation -- it just doesn't mean anything like the claim. As all that the quotation means is that Achilles leads the Myrmidons, a point already made in the lede, I have removed it.Czrisher (talk) 22:36, 9 November 2013 (UTC)

Modern Myrmidons[edit]

The Myrmidon Club now has its own article on a separate page. Would anyone object if the description of it on this page were abbreviated? 45ossington 15:07, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

Real Or Mythical[edit]

The first section says the Myrmidons were an ancient greek tribe, the second section talks of the mythical Myrmidons. Is there any evidence (not counting Homer) that they actually existed? 94.196.133.30 (talk) 01:30, 15 August 2009 (UTC)
