Chryseis is the girl Agamemnon wants to replace
You are AGAMEMNON. No problem - you'll take Achilles' girl, or Odysseus' or Ajax's. It would be wrong for you to be without a prize. You appear to believe that Achilles will accept this! But he is disgusted, and his anger mounts ominously. He accuses you of always doing the least, but getting the biggest share of loot. He says he never had any quarrel with the Trojans himself anyway; he only came to Troy as a favour.
