  • Thus Ajax spoke: obedient to his word, On all the chiefs Atrides call'd aloud: "O friends, the chiefs and councillors of Greece, All ye that banquet at the gen'ral cost With Atreus' sons, and o'er your sev'ral states Dominion hold; whose honour is of Jove; 'Twere hard to call by name each single man, So fierce the combat rages; but let each And all their aid afford, and deem, it shame Patroclus' corpse should glut the dogs of Troy."
