ARGUMENT.

Thetis, having brought Achilles his new armour, and promised to preserve the body of Patroclus from corruption, he is reconciled to Agamemnon, and being miraculously invigorated by Minerva, goes forth to battle, regardless of the prediction of his fate by his horse Xanthus.

 

Safron-robed Morn was rising from the streams of ocean, that she might bear light to immortals and mortals;[619] but she (Thetis) came to the ships, bearing the gifts from the god. Her dear son she found lying upon Patroclus, bitterly lamenting, and his numerous companions were lamenting around him. But near to him stood the divine of goddesses, and hung upon his hand and spoke, and addressed him:

[Footnote 619: "To resalute the world with sacred light Leucothea waked, and with fresh dews embalm'd The earth."—Par. Lost. xi. 132.]
