Hæmos

.

A range of mountains separating Thrace and Mœʹsia, called by the classic writers Cold Hœmos. (Greek, cheimon, winter; Latin, hiems; Sanskrit, hima.)

“Oʹer high Pierʹia thence her course she bore,

Oʹer fair Emathʹia’s ever-pleasing shore;

Oʹer Hæmus hills with snows eternal crownʹd,

Nor once her flying foot approached the ground


Pope: Homer’s Iliad, xiv.
