STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ACHILLES

So Achilles gathered the Greeks for the battle, and he shone in the midst with the arms which Thetis had brought, and he flashed like fire. Into the battle he rushed, slaying as he went. And Hector would have met him, but Apollo stood by him and said, "Fight not with Achilles, lest he slay thee." Therefore he went back among the men of Troy. Many did Achilles slay, and among them the youngest son of Priam. When Hector saw this, he could stand back no longer. So he rushed at Achilles, and Achilles rejoiced to see him, saying, "This is the man who slew my comrade." But they did not fight, for when Hector cast his spear, Athena turned it aside, and when Achilles charged, Apollo bore Hector away.
Then Achilles turned to the others, and slew many of them; and those escaping fled, part across the plain, and part to the river. These leaped into the water as locusts leap into a river when the fire which men light drives them from the fields. And all the river was full of horses and men. Many of the Trojans hid themselves under the banks of the river. That hour the Greeks would have taken Troy, but Apollo saved it by drawing Achilles away from the city. For Apollo took the form of a Trojan chief, whom Achilles pursued far from the walls of Troy.

VI. HOW ACHILLES AVENGED THE DEATH OF PATROCLUS
The Trojans were now safe in the city, refreshing themselves after all their toil. Hector alone remained outside the walls, standing in front of the great gates of the city. But all the while Achilles was fiercely pursuing Apollo, until at last the god turned and spoke to him:
" Why dost thou pursue me, swift-footed Achilles? Hast thou not yet discovered that I am a god, and that all thy fury is, in vain? And now all the sons of Troy are safe in
