Specific information about this server

  • Ikariam uses "s36" in its URL as the server designation for this world, no matter which community server / language version you use.
    • Ikariam used the Greek Alphabet  wp as names for the first twenty-four worlds (124).
    • Ikariam used the Greek Immortals wp as names for the twenty-fifth through the forty-fourth worlds (2544).
    • Ikariam is currently using Greek Mortals wp and Mythological Creatures wp as names for the newer set of worlds (4546).
  • Ikariam uses a few special servers for the following reasons:
    • "Speed servers" (Discontinued) (not used often / reset after each session) - For when they need to test changes that occur at Higher levels of the game and would take too long at normal speed to reach.  These servers run at four times (4x) the normal speed when they are used.
    • "Test servers ( 1  / < 2  (Discontinued) /  3  (Internal use) /  4  (Internal use) /  5  (Internal use)] /  6  (Internal use)]" - For testing the beta wp patches before they go out to the live servers.
    • "War servers [ 1  (Discontinued) (reset after each round - 1 per language group) /  2  (Permanent - in each community)]" - Special servers run at three times (3x) the normal speed, allows Pillaging of gold and have a different set of rules compared to the normal game servers.

General information

In ancient Greek religion  wp and myth wp, the Anemoi (Greek] wp Ἄνεμοι, "Winds") were wind gods who were each ascribed a cardinal direction  wp from which their respective winds came (see Classical compass winds  wp), and were each associated with various seasons wp and weather  wp conditions.

Lesser Winds

Four lesser wind deities appear in a few ancient sources, such as at the Tower of the Winds  wp in Athens:

Kaikias was the Greek deity of the northeast wind. He is shown on the monument as a bearded man with a shield full of hailstones.

Apeliotes (or Apheliotes) (the name means 'from the (rising) sun') was the Greek deity of the east wind. As this wind was thought to cause a refreshing rain particularly beneficial to farmers, he is often depicted wearing high boots and carrying fruit, draped in a light cloth concealing some flowers or grain. He is clean shaven, with curly hair and a friendly expression. Because Apeliotes was a minor god, he was often syncretized with Eurus, the southeast wind. The Roman counterpart of Apeliotes was Subsolanus.

Skiron was the name used in Athens for the wind which blew from the Scironian rocks (a geographical feature near Kineta  wp to the west of Athens). On the Tower of the Winds, however, he appears on the northwest side. His name is related to Skirophorion, the last of the three months of spring in the Attic calendar  wp. He is depicted as a bearded man tilting a cauldron, representing the onset of winter. His Roman counterpart is Caurus or Corus. Caurus was also one of the oldest Roman wind-deities, and numbered among the di indigetes  wp ("indigenous gods"), a group of abstract and largely minor numinous wp entities. The Roman poet Virgil  wp writes when describing steppe winter weather near the Sea of Azov  wp:

  • Semper hiemps, semper spirantes frigora cauri
"Always winter, always the northwest winds breathing cold"

Lips was the Greek deity of the southwest wind, often depicted holding the stern  wp of a ship. His Roman equivalent was Africus, due to the Roman province Africa wp being to the southwest of Italy  wp. This name is thought to be derived from the name of a {{WPL|North Africa|North African]] tribe, the Afri  wp.

Other minor wind deities included:

  • Argestes "clearing", a wind blowing from about the same direction as Skiron (Caurus), and probably another name for it
  • Aparctias, sometimes called the north wind instead of Boreas
  • Thrascias, the north-north-west wind (sometimes called in Latin Circius)
  • Euronotus, the wind blowing from the direction, as its name suggests, between Euros and Notos, that is, a south-southeast wind (Euroauster to the Romans)
  • Iapyx  wp, the northwest wind about the same as Caurus. It was this wind, according to Virgil  wp, that carried the fleeing Cleopatra  wp home to Egypt after she was defeated at the battle of Actium  wp.
  • Libonotus, the south-southwest wind, known as Austro-Africus to the Romans
  • Meses, another name for the north-west wind
  • Olympias, apparently identified with Skiron/Argestes
  • Phoenicias, another name for the southeast wind ("the one blowing from Phoenicia", due to this land lying to the south-east of Greece)
