STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ACHILLES

through the battle; and when Menelaus saw him coming, he fled back into the ranks of his own people. Then Hector stripped off the arms of Patroclus, the arms which the great Achilles had given him to wear. And when he had done this, he laid hold of the body, and would have dragged it into the host of the Trojans, but Ajax the Greater came forth and put his broad shield before it, as a lion stands before his cubs when the hunters meet it in the woods.
But Hector said, "I fear you not, nor any man. Zeus gives victory now to one man and now to another. But wait here and see whether I am a coward or not."
He had sent the armor of Patroclus, to the city. Now he ran after those that were carrying it, and overtook them. Hector put on the armor himself-but Zeus saw him doing is it, and liked it not-and he came back to the battle; and all who saw him thought that he fought like Achilles himself. Then they all charged together, and fiercer grew the battle. At last Ajax said to Menelaus-these two had borne themselves more bravely in the fight than all others:
"See if you can find Antilochus, Nestor's son, that he may carry the tidings to Achilles that Patroclus is dead."

Run, therefore, to Achilles, and tell him. Perhaps he may save the body; but as for the arms, Hector has them already."
Sad, indeed, was Antilochus to hear such tidings; his eyes were filled with tears, and his voice was choked. Yet he gave heed to the words of Menelaus and ran to tell Achilles of what had happened. But Menelaus went back to Ajax, where he had left him with Patroclus, and said:
