The Robot Girls of Ancient Greece

In Homer’s Iliad, there appears the following passage. Translation by yours truly, because if you can’t use your 7 years of ancient Greek for translating things like this, what can you use it for?

… And to their lord hastened
Golden servants like living maidens.
In them were minds and hearts, voice and strength,
And they have learned skills from the deathless gods.
They hurried around and about their master. (Iliad 18.417-421)

Why am I posting about ancient Greek lady-robots made of gold? It’s a secret—for now. Feel free to let your imaginations go wild. (Lord knows I did!)
