SUMMARY / RELATED TOPICS

Enyo

Enyo was a goddess of war in Classical Greek mythology. She is associated with the war god Ares, she is called the "sister of War" by Quintus Smyrnaeus, in a role resembling that of Eris, the embodiment of strife and discord, with Homer, in particular, representing the two as the same goddess. In some myths she is identified as the mother of the war god Enyalius as well, in these myths, Ares is indicated as the father, the masculine name Enyalius or Enyalios may be used as a title for Ares; as goddess of war, Enyo is responsible for orchestrating the destruction of cities accompanying Ares into battle. She is depicted as "supreme in war". During the fall of Troy, Enyo inflicted terror and bloodshed in the war, along with Eris and Deimos, the latter two being sons of Ares, she and the two sons of Ares are depicted on the shield of Achilles. Enyo was involved in the war of the Seven Against Thebes and in Dionysus's war with the Indians as well. Enyo so delighted in warfare that she refused to take sides in the battle between Zeus and the monster Typhon: Eris was Typhon's escort in the mellee, Nike led Zeus into battle… impartial Enyo held equal balance between the two sides, between Zeus and Typhon, while the thunderbolts with booming shots revel like dancers in the sky.

The Romans identified Enyo with Bellona. She has similarities with the Anatolian goddess Ma. At Thebes and Orchomenos, a festival entitled Homolôïa, celebrated in honour of Zeus, Demeter and Enyo, was said to have received the surname of Homoloïus from Homoloïs, a priestess of Enyo. A statue of Enyo, made by the sons of Praxiteles, stood in the temple of Ares at Athens. In Hesiod's Theogony, Enyo was the name of one of the Graeae, three sisters who shared one eye and one tooth among them; this article incorporates text from a publication now in the public domain: Leonhard Schmitz.

Floyd County, Indiana

Floyd County is a county located in the U. S. state of Indiana. As of 2018, the population was 77,781; the county seat is New Albany. Floyd County has the second-smallest land area in the entire state, it was formed in the year 1819 from neighboring Clark, Harrison counties. Floyd County is part of KY -- IN Metropolitan Statistical Area. Floyd County the Shawnee Indians hunting ground, was conquered for the United States by George Rogers Clark during the American Revolutionary War from the British, he was awarded large tracts of land in Indiana, including all of present-day Floyd County. Clark sold land to the settlers. In 1818, New Albany was large enough to form a new county. New Albany leaders sent Nathaniel Scribner and John K. Graham to the capital at Corydon to petition the General Assembly. Legislation was passed on January 2, 1819 by the General Assembly, the county was established on February 1; the origin of the county's name is debated. According to the State Library, it was named for John Floyd, a leading Jefferson County, Kentucky pioneer and uncle of Davis Floyd.

John Floyd was killed in 1783 when his party was attacked by Indians in Kentucky. However, some maintain the county was named for Davis Floyd, convicted of aiding Aaron Burr in the treason of 1809. Davis Floyd had been a leading local political figure and was the county's first circuit court judge. In 1814, New Albany was platted and was established as the county seat on March 4, 1819. There was an attempt in 1823 to move the county seat. New Albany would be the largest city in the state for much of the early 19th century being overtaken by Indianapolis during the Civil War. Between 1800 and 1860, Floyd County experienced a huge boom in population. A survey in the 1850s found that over half of Indiana's population that made more than $100,000 per year lived in Floyd County, establishing it as having the richest population in the state; the Duncan Tunnel, the longest tunnel in Indiana, was built in Floyd County in 1881 between New Albany and Edwardsville. Because no route over the Floyds Knobs was suitable for a railroad line, civil engineers decided to tunnel through them.

The project was started by the Air Line but was completed by Southern Railway. It took five years to bore at a cost of $1 million; the Tunnel is 4,311 feet long. Floyd County, during the 19th century, attracted immigrants of Irish, German and African American origins; the French settlers located in Floyds Knobs, Indiana. The Irish began arriving in 1817 and settled in large numbers between 1830 and 1850. German immigrants settled in New Albany. By 1850, about one in six county residents had been born in other countries. Mount Saint Francis, a multi-purpose complex owned and administered by the Conventual Franciscan Friars of the Province of Our Lady of Consolation, is located in Floyds Knobs along Highway 150; the property includes 400 acres of woods and Mount Saint Francis Lake, both which are open to the public.

For the first time, his boss has indicated he will visit on Sunday, as he now knows that his daughter Louise has secretly become engaged to Paul.

Louise's visit is anticipated. Felix and Rosette know Louise and find her rather boring, nothing special to look at, they therefore contemplate. In the middle of the night, a solution presents itself: the doorbell rings. Felix opens the door and is overcome by the beautiful form of the young lady standing in front of him, she is requesting help. While Paul reacts unhelpfully, Felix accompanies the "charming lady" to her car and acts as if to help, she is not interested and converses with her chauffeur, so he slashes the tyre and makes the flat tyre worse. Annette, the young lady, must be offered a bed for the night in Paul's house; the chauffeur sets out with Paul's housekeeper Julie on foot, to inform Annette's father what has happened. All others go to bed. Setting: Living area in Paul's weekend house A new day has started.

When the doorbell rings, Paul hopes she will be gone. They are both outraged to find an unknown woman there in a negligee, leave the house within minutes. Paul is bemused, while Felix is quite satisfied with proceedings; this doesn't last, as the "Chocolate King" enters, but not alone, rather with Annette's fiancé Hektor in tow. Annette awaits accusations and blame, but Hektor appears quite relaxed — no word of reproach passes his lips. Now Annette is angry. Felix's plan appears to be working. Setting: Office in the Ministry Felix has arranged for Annette to visit Paul during his lunch break in his office. Paul, shy to a fault, doesn't know. Annette kisses Paul just as Paul's boss enters the room; the boss is furious, having depended on Paul as a right-hand man for many years and hoping to welcome him as a son-in-law. Paul realises. While just a moment before, he wasn't sure whether he should court Annette, now it is clear: Annette must be removed from his life. Setting: By a river While entertaining thoughts of the "charming lady", Paul is beset by an urge to throw himself into the river and end his life.

He notices a woman in a simple dress, the uniform of the Salvation Army, approaching him. As she nears him, he realises, his heart beats wildly. Annette offers. Paul takes her in his arms. Two men are watching, concealed: the "chocolate king" and Felix. Paul's Song "Ach Louise, kein Mädchen ist wie diese!"
