STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ACHILLES

If you will not go to the battle, fearing some warning from the gods, let me go, and your Myrmidons with me. Let me put on your armor; so shall the Greeks have a breathing space from the war."

I said that I would not rise up till the battle should come nigh to my own ships. But you may wear my armor and lead my Myrmidons to the fight. For in truth the men of Troy are gathered as a dark cloud about the ships, and the Greeks have scarce standing-ground between them and the sea. For they see not the gleam of my helmet. I do not hear the voice of Agamemnon, but only the voice of Hector, as he
