I myself desire that my people be safe, not perish. Find me then some prize that shall be my own, lest I only among the Argives go without, since that were unfitting” (78) son of Atreus (Agamemnon)  Achilleus: “Son of Atreus, most lordly, greediest for gain of all men”  Agamemnon “What do you want?
