What Achilles would have said when he saw the Armour lying before him

Texts

μῆτερ, τεύχεα ταῦτα καὶ ἀγλαὰ δῶρα κομίζεις
ἀγχεμάχῳ σέο παιδί, τὰ μὴ πάρος ἔδρακεν ἀνήρ:
οἶδα δὲ νῦν ὅτι Παλλὰς ἐφ᾽ Ἕκτορι χεῖρα κορύσσει
ἡμετέρην, καὶ Τρωσὶν ἀεικέα λοιγὸν ἐγείρει.

— Paton edition

Mother, thou bringest to thy valiant son this
armour, a glorious gift such as no man ever looked
on. Now I know that Pallas arms my hand against
Hector, and prepares disgrace and death for the
Trojans.
