What Hector would say when he saw Achilles in the Armour

Texts

τί ἂν εἴποι Ἕκτωρ ὁρῶν τὸν Ἀχιλλέα ἐν τοῖς ὅπλοις
Πηλείδην κοτέουσα πάλιν θώρηξεν Ἀθήνη
ἔντεσιν ἀθανάτοις. ἦ ῥίγιον ἔσσεται ἄλγος
αἰνομόροις Τρώεσσι, καὶ Ἕκτορι, καὶ γενετῆρι,
ὁππόταν ἔντεα ταῦτα θεὸς πόρεν ἀνέρι τῷδε.

— Paton edition

Athena in her wrath has again clothed the son of
Peleus in immortal mail. Some worse woe shall befall
the unhappy Trojans and Hector and his father,
since the goddess gave this man this armour.
