STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ACHILLES

Greater; Nestor, oldest and wisest among the Greeks; Ulysses, crafty in counsel. All these were there that day, and many more; and the strongest was Ajax the Greater; but there was none that could compare with Achilles, the
bravest man, whose horses were the swiftest steeds. But he sat apart and would not go to battle.
On the other side the sons of Troy and their allies came forth from the gates of the city and set themselves in battle array. The most famous of their chiefs were these: Hector, son of King Priam, bravest and best of all, and Aeneas, son of Anchises and the goddess Aphrodite.
So the battle was set in array, and the two hosts stood over against each other.
While they stood ready for the battle, Paris rushed forth
from the ranks of the Trojans. He had a panther's skin over his shoulders, and aa bow and sword, and in either hand a spear, and he called aloud to the Greeks that they should send forth their bravest to fight with him. But when Menelaus saw him, he was glad, for he said that now he would avenge himself on the man who had done him such wrong. He leaped from his chariot and rushed to meet his enemy; but Paris, having done evil, and being therefore a coward in his heart, was afraid when he saw Menelaus, and fled back into the ranks of his comrades. Then Hector saw him and rebuked him. "You are fair to look upon, Paris, but worthless. Surely the Greeks will scorn us if they think that you are our bravest warrior. You are a coward; and yet you dared to go across the sea and carry off the fair Helen. Why do you not stand and fight against her husband, and see what sort of man he is?"
Then Paris answered, "You speak well, Hector, and your rebuke is just. Now set Menelaus and me in the midst, and
