"Ship", the most frequent noun in Homer's Iliad · 2005-12-17

I argue on my book that homeric kings, βασιλεῖς, are not exactly kings, but ship captains. This is not a piece of evidence, but a curiosity: a statistic research of all words used at the Iliad, made with the Perseus vocabulary tool, shows that the word for ship, ναῦς, is the most frequently used noun all over the Iliad, before other usual nouns as ἀνήρ and Ζεύς.
