Visual aids: War With Troy, Episode 11


  • The death of Achilles
    Based on red-figure vase by the Niobid Painter, c. 460 BC. Antikenmuseum, Ruhr-Universität, Bochum. This rather crude depiction of the death of Achilles is slightly different from the description in Episode 11. Instead of being caught with Polyxena, Achilles is shown here in full armour, apparently about to fight Paris. But on one point the two versions agree: the death of Achilles is brought about by Apollo (centre) redirecting an arrow fired by Paris (left).
