Calchas names Agamemnon as the man responsible for the plague
You are AGAMEMNON. Calchas says the plague is your fault, because you refuse to give back the lovely Chryseis to her father, priest of Apollo. You are mad, furious, seething with anger. But, leader that you are, you agree to give her back - even though you prefer her to Clytemnestra, the wife you left behind in Argos. But in return, you must have another prize.
