STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ACHILLES

Greeks drew to themselves and stripped of its arms. Next, Patroclus rushed against the men of Troy. Thrice he rushed, and each time he slew nine chiefs of fame. But the fourth time Apollo stood behind him and struck him on the head and shoulders, so that his eyes grew dim. The helmet fell from his head, and the horsehair plumes were soiled with dust. Never before had that headpiece touched the ground, for it was the helmet of Achilles. The god also broke the spear in his hand, and struck the shield from his arms, and loosed his corselet, till all amazed he stood. Then Patroclus sought to flee to the ranks of his comrades. But Hector saw him, and thrust his spear at him so that he fell. When the Greeks saw him fall, they sent up a terrible cry. Then Hector stood over him and cried:
"Did you think to spoil our city, Patroclus, and to carry away our wives and daughters in the ships? Instead, you are slain, and the great Achilles cannot help you at allAchilles, who bade you, no doubt, to strip the tunic from my breast."
But Patroclus answered, "You boast much, Hector. Yet it was not you that slew me, but Apollo, who took from me my arms, for had twenty such as you met me, I would have slain them all. And mark this, death and fate are close to you by the hand of the great Achilles."
Hector answered, though Pa.troclus was already dead: "Why do you prophesy death to me? It may be that the great Achilles himself will fall by my hand."
Then he drew his spear from the wound and went away.
