|Poor Priam is terrified, but
Achilles attends to the practical
things. He has the body washed,
anointed and wrapped - because if
Priam saw the body he might get
emotional and Achilles would
have to kill him. |
Achilles helps to load it on the cart. He prays to Patroclus to forgive him. Then he invites Priam to supper.
