Thetis flies off to Olympus to see Hephaestus
You are ACHILLES. Hector has not given up - he is still hoping to drag Patroclus' body off and cut off its head. But Iris tells you to show yourself on the wall - just the sight of you and the sound of your warcry will scare the Trojans into breaking off the battle. At last the mangled body is brought in. Night falls at last.
