The Iliad brand  was established in the late teens or early 1920's--no later than 1922, when they were copyrighted in Nathan Elson's name.   Iliad cigar boxes appear to be quite scarce.  Sales of the line were apparently modest and the number of surviving examples is likely to be quite limited.   The two boxes illustrated below are the only known types known to this web site.  A more recent label featuring a lyre (see Labels page) exists but no boxes with that label have surfaced.
