STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ACHILLES

priest said that Paris would grow to be a danger and a curse to his family and to his country, King Priam had his servants take the baby to a mountain-side and leave it there to die. But some shepherds found the child, and reared him carefully. He grew to be a tall, beautiful youth, very active and skillful in all sorts of games.
Now it so happened that when Paris was a young man, Peleus, King of Thessaly, married Thetis, a goddess of the sea. These two called to their wedding feast all the gods, for Thetis was herself of the race of the gods. One only they did not invite, and that one was Discord. But Discord came unbidden, bringing with her a golden apple on which she had written these words, "To the Fairest." This she threw among the guests and swiftly departed.
When these words were read aloud, there was hardly a woman or a goddess in the whole company but thought that the apple belonged to her. Three were so bold as openly to claim it, and these three were Hera, queen of the gods, Athena, goddess of war, and Aphrodite, goddess of love and beauty. When it was asked who should be judge in the matter, Zeus said to Hermes, the messenger of the gods:
" There is a shepherd on Mount Ida, Paris by name; he is son of Priam, King of Troy, and he is the most beautiful of mortal men. Let him be the judge in the matter; for if an immortal god should judge, there will be no end to the quarrel; but if a mortal man be judge, then it will come to an end when he dies. Be thou guide to these three, and show them the place, and give my message to Paris."
So Hermes took the three to Mount Ida, and they stood before Paris so that he might judge which was the fairest of the three. Nor were they satisfied that he should judge
