  • [pdf] Briseis taken from Achilles
    Based on a cup by the Briseis Painter, c. 480 BC. British Museum, London.
    After his very public argument with Achilles, Agamemnon insisted on taking away Achilles’ favourite slave, Briseis, as a way of asserting his authority as commander of the Greek armies. In this picture Briseis (second from the left) is being led away from Achilles’ tent by two attendants, while Achilles (second from right) stays sitting on a stool, his face covered (perhaps to conceal his distress?).
