Is there a complete audio of the Iliad available?

Are you reading Homeric Greek? Whether you are a total beginner or an advanced Homerist, here you can meet kindred spirits. Besides Homer, use this board for all things early Greek poetry.

Salvete Graeci,

Does anyone know of a complete recording-in Greek-of the Iliad? I have listened to the excerpts read by Stanley Lombardo
http://wiredforbooks.org/iliad/
but I would like to listen to the entire poem.

Valete,

Timotheus

I wouldn't buy Stanley Lombardo's recital of Iliad.
Let alone the aspirated pronunciation of smooth plosives, his "reading" is totally out of meters.

I think the "Demodokos' song" sample here reproduces what's most close to what I learned from Pharr.

I wonder if they had put all Iliad and Odyssey in such a quality in the Audio Forum version.

[edit]
Oh, the Audio Forum version is recited by Daitz, and the sample here was once discussed here in textkit. I forgot what was the general consensus of the advanced members. But my impression was that it sounds too exaggerated and artificial, to the point of ridiculousness.

I don't use any audio recordings myself. I just mentioned the editions above because they appear to be complete editions, for whomever may endure whatever flaws they may have.

Anyway I'm a novice myself and please do not take my impression too seriously. ;)
