STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ACHILLES

battle, for she did not know that he would never come again. But when the sound of wailing came from the town to her, she rose up hastily in great fear, dropped the shuttle from her hand, and called to her maidens:
"Come with me, O maidens, that I may see what has happened, for I heard the voice of Queen Hecuba, and I fear that some evil has come to the children of Priam. It may be that Achilles has run between Hector and the city, and is pursuing him to the plain, for Hector will never stay with the army, but will always fight in the front, so bold is he."
Then she hastened through the city, with terror in her heart. When she came to the wall, she stood and looked; and lo! she saw Achilles taking Hector's body to the ships.
Then her eyes grew dim, and she fell back fainting.
While the maidens took care of Andromache, Thetis, at the bidding of Zeus, went to Achilles and found him weeping softly for his.dead friend, and she said to him, "It is the will of the gods that thou shouldst give up the body of Hector, and take in exchange the ransom of gold and precious things which his father will give thee."
And her son answered, "If the gods will it, be it so."
Then Zeus sent his messenger to King Priam, where he sat with his face wrapped in his mantle, his sons weeping about him, and his daughters wailing through the charnbers of his palace.
To him the messenger of Zeus said:
" Be of good cheer, Priam; Zeus has sent me to thee. Go, taking with thee such gifts as may best please the heart of Achilles, and bring back the body of thy dear son Hector. Go without fear of death or harm, and go alone. Only let an aged herald go with thee, to help thee when thou bringest back the body of the dead."
