The above expression, Homer the ancient
Greek poet, putted in Hephaestus mouth. With this words Hephaestus wanted
to show his appreciation and gratitude to the people of Limnos for their
sympathy and hospitality. Hephaestus, arrived to the limnos island,when
he was driven away from mount Olympus.
Hephaestus establish himself in the island and he is working there ever
since, in his underground work shops,because as we all know, he was the
god of fire and skills, of the ancient Greeks.
Even today, if you lay down and put your ear in the ground, perhaps you
might be able to hear Hephaestus hammering in his underground anvil.
