STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ACHILLES

let us fight, man to man, for the fair Helen and for all her possessions. If he be victor over me, let him take her and them and depart, and the Greeks with him, and you shall dwell in peace; but if I be victor, they shall depart without her."
So King Priam,on the one side, for the Trojans, and King Agamemnon, for the Greeks, made a solemn agreement that Paris and Menelaus should fight together, and that the fair Helen, with all her treasures, should go with him who should be victor.
Then Hector and Ulysses marked out a space for the fight. The two warriors armed themselves, came forth, and stood brandishing their spears, with hate in their eyes. Paris threw his spear. It struck the shield of Menelaus but pierced it not. Then Menelaus cast his long-shafted spear; but Paris shrank aside, and the spear wounded him not. Menelaus rushed forward and seized Paris by the helmet. Certainly he would have taken him captive, but Aphrodite loosed the strap under his chin, and the helmet came off.
Then Aphrodite snatched Paris away, covering him with a mist, and put him down in his chamber in Troy. Menelatts looked for Paris everywhere, but no one could tell him where he might be.
Then King Agamemnon said, "Now, sons of Troy, it is for you to give back the fair Helen and her wealth, and to pay me besides as much as may be fitting, for all my cost and trouble."
But it was not the will of the gods that the sons of Troy should do this thing, but rather that the city should perish.
Then King Agamemnon went throughout the host, and if he saw anyone getting ready for battle, he praised him and gave him encouragement; but if he saw anyone hanging back, he blamed him, whether he was common man or chief.
