Traduction française
And practically all the people of Borysthenes also have cultivated an interest in 
Homer, possibly because of their still being a warlike people, although it may also be 
due to their regard for Achilles, for they honour him exceedingly, and they have 
actually established two temples for his worship, one on the island that bears his 
name  and one in their city; and so they do not wish even to hear about any other 
poet than Homer. And although in (p431) general they no longer speak Greek 
distinctly, because they live in the midst of barbarians, still almost all at 
least know the Iliad by heart.
