STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ACHILLES

to the walls of Troy, lest one of the gods meet you to your hurt; for remember that the keen archer Apollo loves the Trojans well.''
But as they talked one to the other, the men of Troy set s torches to the ships, and a great flame shot up to the sky. When Achilles saw it, he smote his thigh and said:
" Hasten, Patroclus, for I see the fire rising from the ships. Put on the armor, and I will call my people to the war."
io So Patroclus put on the armor-corselet and shield and helmet-and bound upon his shoulder the silver-studded sword, and took a mighty spear in his hand. Then he mounted the chariot drawn by the horses of Achilles, those mighty steeds.
is Meanwhile Achilles called the Myrmidons to battle. Fifty ships had he brought to Troy, and in each there were fifty men. Achilles said, "Forget not, O Myrmidons, the bold words that you spoke against the men of Troy during the days of my wrath, complaining that I kept you from the battle against your will. Now you have your wish."
So the Myrmidons went to the battle in close array, helmet to helmet and shield to shield, close as the stones with which a builder makes a wall. And Patroclus went in front. Then Achilles went to his tent and took from his chest a great cup which Thetis, his mother, had given him. Now no man except Achilles drank from that cup, and he poured out of it offerings to no god but Zeus himself, father of all the gods. First he cleansed this with sulphur, and then with water from the spring. After that he washed his hands, and standing before his tent, he poured out wine to Zeus, saying:
" O Zeus, I send my comrade to this battle; make him strong and bold, and give him glory, and bring him home safe to the ships, and my people with him."
