Troops from the strong fortress Mycenae,- rich Corinth, 
well-built Cleonae, Orneae, lovely Araethyrea,                                    
Sicyon,  whose first king was Adrestos, 
with men from Hyperesia, lofty Gonoessa, 
Pellene, from Aegium, men from coastal regions
and wide Helice—of these men Agamemnon, 
son of Atreus, led one hundred ships. 
 Homer Ilias, II
