Zeus sent the wearisome Goddess Hate

I was just reading Iliad XI, line 3 and noticed the first 3-word colon,

"Zeus d'Erida proialle..."

Ζεὺς δ' Ἔριδα προΐαλλε

Zeus sent Eris.

Lattimore translates Eris' name as "the wearisome goddess Hate." I heard that name all the time back in graduate school, that 2nd word in the line... and did we like Limited, Inc.? Hated it.

Gonna think about pie, flying kites, happy healthy penguins, and Springtime. Happy Independence Day, everyone.
