Visual aids: War With Troy, Episode 10

Below are a series of links and suggested activities for using visual aids to support the teaching of this episode.

  • Priam and Achilles
    Based on an amphora, c. 540 BC. Staatliche Kunstsammlungen, Kassel.
    Priam stretches out his hands towards the body of Hector, who is lying as if asleep. Behind Priam stands Briseis with her veil pulled aside as a mark of respect. Achilles lies on a couch above Hector, his hand pointing downwards, perhaps to indicate that he is willing to return Hector’s body to the Trojans for formal burial.
