STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ACHILLES

Hector, let there be a truce between my people and the Greeks. For nine days let us mourn for Hector, and on the tenth we will bury him and let the people feast, and on the eleventh raise a great tomb above him, and on the twelfth we will fight again, if fight we must."
And Achilles answered, "Be it so; I will stop the war while you give burial to Hector."
Wailing and weeping, Priam and the herald took the body to the city.
Cassandra, daughter of Priam, was the first to see her father and the herald, and the dead body on the litter, and she cried: "Sons and daughters of Troy, go to meet Hector, if ever you met him with joy as he came back in triumph from the battle."
And straightway there was not man or woman left in the city. They met the wagon when it was close to the gates. Andromache led the way, and Ilecuba and all the multitude followed. They took Hector to his home and laid him on his bed. And the minstrels mourned, and the women wept aloud.
Then first of all came Andromache, his wife, who cried: "O my husband, you have perished in your youth, and I am left a widow, and our child, your child and mine, is but an infant! I fear he will not grow to manhood. Before that day this city will fall, for you are gone who were its defender. Therefore, the people wail for you today. Great is your parents' grief, O Hector, but mine is greater."
Next spoke Hecuba, his mother: "My son, dear were you in life to the immortal gods, and dear are you in death.
Even now you lie as fresh and fair as one whom the god of the silver bow had slain with a sudden stroke."
And last of all came Helen, and cried: "Many a year
