THE STORY OF ACHILLES

fire. Then went he to the trench; with the battle he mingled not, heeding his mother's commands, but he shouted aloud, and his voice was as the sound of a trumpet. When the men of Troy heard, they were stricken with fear; the horses backed with the chariots, and the drivers were astonished when they saw above his head the flaming fire which Athena had kindled. Thrice across the trench the great Achilles shouted, and thrice the men of Troy fell back.
Then did the Greeks take the body of Patroclus away from the battle. They laid it on a bier and carried it to the tent, while Achilles walked with many tears by the side of the body.
In the camp of the Greeks they mourned for Patroclus. And Achilles stood among his Myrmidons and said:
"Vain was the promise that I made to the father of Patroclus that I would bring back his son with his portion of the spoils of Troy. Zeus fulfills not the thoughts of man. Pa-troclus lies dead; and I shall not return to the house of my father, for I, too, must die in this land. But you, O Patroclus, I will not bury till I bring hither the body of Hector."
So they washed the body of Patroclus and anointed it, putting ointment into the wounds; they laid it on a bed, and covered it with a veil from the head to the feet.
Meanwhile Achilles sat mourning for Patroclus, and his comrades wept about him. At dawn Thetis brought the new arms and laid them before him. Loud they rattled on the ground, and all the Myrmidons trembled to hear, but when Achilles saw them, his eyes blazed with fire, and he rejoiced in his heart.
Then Achilles went along the shore and called the Greeks, shouting mightily; and all, even those who usually stayed in the ships, heard him and came.
