The song is Nanourisma (Νανούρισμα) from the young but wonderful Areti Ketime (Αρετή Κετιμέ). It is a lullaby, but filled with powerful meanings.

Olympias (Ὀλυμπιάς) was a Greek princess from Epirus, a descendant of the greatest warrior Achilles (Ἀχιλλεύς), through his son Neoptolemus (Νεοπτόλημος).
