Briseis (or Chryseis?)Chryseis and Briseis are the two girls in Iliad 1 around whom the quarrel develops. Neither has a name of her own: Chryseis means daughter of Chryses (the priest of Apollo) and Briseis is "daughter of Briseus". Chryseis' father asked Agamemnon to give her back, and offered a huge reward. Eventually Agamemnon is pressurised into returning her, but demands Briseis (whom the army had awarded as a prize to Achilles) in return. She's taken to Agamemnon's hut, but he claims never to have slept with her, and she is given back after Patroclus' death. There's a touching scene where she mourns the man who'd been so kind to her.
