terror in a world not yet tuned to the clap of megatons.

In peace they could assume the allurements of the coquette. In war, when the lust of conquest raised them above mercy and laughter, they impiously outbattled armies of men.
Their horsemanship and archery commanded admiration when not inspiring dread.
the generations born since they vanished after the fall of Troy have been
touched by the wonder of them.
Today, after three millenniums, their ability to inspire has not abated.
