A THEOSOPHIST : APOLLONIUS OF TYANA

of I spoke.' ` I will,' was my answer, for the purpose of the embassy was to save them from destruction. ` But, O Achilles, I have a favour to beg of you.' ` I perceive ', he said, ` it is plain that you wish to ask a question about the Trojan War. Ask any five points that you please and that the Fates allow.' So I asked first whether he had got burial according to the account of the poets. ` I rest ', he said, ` as I liked best and Patroclus : we were heart in hand from our earliest youth, and in death we are not divided, but one golden urn contains us both. But as for dirges of Muses and Nereids, which they say took place over me, the Muses never came here at all, though the Nereids do still haunt the scene.' Next I asked whether Polyxena was slain over him ; and he said the fact was true ; only she was not slaughtered by the Achaeans, but came of her own accord to the tomb and there did honour to his love and hers by falling upon her erected sword. My third question was, ` Did Helen come to Troy, Achilles, or was it a fiction of Homer's? ' ` We were misled for a long time while we were sending embassies to the Trojans and fighting battles for her sake, as if she were in Troy ; but she was in Egypt ; she had been in Proteus' house there, ever since she was ravished away by Paris. After we were assured of this, we continued fighting for Troy's sake instead, to save ourselves from a dishonourable retreat.' I ventured a fourth inquiry, and said I was surprised that Greece bore so many and such men as Homer enlists against Troy. And Achilles answered, 'The foreign fellows were not much behind us, either. There was such a florison of valour then in all the earth.' Fifthly, I asked, ` What ailed Homer that he knows not Palamedes, or knowingly excludes him from the tale of your army ?'` If Palamedes never came to Troy,' he replied, 'then Troy never existed. But since this most ingenious and gallant of heroes was done to death because Odysseus would have it so, Homer does not introduce him into the poems lest he immortalize the reproach of Odysseus.' And Achilles groaned aloud for him, as the greatest, fairest, youngest
