Famous spearman Idomeneus led the Cretans
from Cnossus, fortified Gortyn, Lyctus, Miletus,
chalky Lycastus, from Phaestus and Rhytium,
both populous towns, with other warriors
from Crete's hundred cities. Idomeneus,
famous for fighting with a spear, led these troops,
along with Meriones, as skilled at killing men
as Ares, god of war. They brought eighty black ships.

Homer, Iliad....

There's a place
in the middle of the wine-dark sea called Crete,
a lovely, fruitful land surrounded by the sea.
Many men live there, more than one can count,
in ninety cities.  The dialects they speak
are all mixed up.  There are Achaeans there, 
and stout-hearted native Cretans, too,  
Cydonians and three groups of Dorians,
and noble Pelasgians.

Homer, Odyssey 19.
