English term or phrase: English to Latin
When Patroclus is dead; Achilles mourns for him for a long time:he wants to take vengence on Hector. He returns to battle and leads his comarades against the Trojans. When they see Achillesa, they are terrified. They flee into the city. Hector alone stays outside the walls. His father Priam, King of Troy, And his mother Hecuba see him through the walls: they call their son. Priam Shouts: 'Hector, don't challange (call) Achilles to battle: you cannot conquer him. Come into the city. Be quick.' His Mother shouts: 'Dear son, don't stay outside the walls; don't go to meet your death; your poor mother begs you.'But Hector does not listen to them; he refuses to enter the city. He calls the Trojans and says, 'Shut the gates, Trojans: Hurry. I am staying alone outside the walls and challanging Achilles to battle.' The Trojans unwillingly shut the gates. Hector waits for Achilles alone. He comes nearer. Then Hector is suddenly afraid. He turns back and flees. Achilles runs quickly but cannot catch him. Three times round the walls flees Hector, but at last he stands firm: he turns round and calls Achilles to battle. Achilles advances and hurls his spear at Hector but Hector avoids the spear. Then Hector hurls his spear and strikes Achille's shield but Achilles is unharmed: his shield saves him. Then Achilles hurls his spear with all his might. The spear flies through the air and pierces Hector. He falls to the ground dead. Achilles runs up and does a terrible deed. He ties the dead Hector to his chariot and drags him round the walls. His father and mother watch from the walls. Hecuba shouts: 'O Achilles,' she says, 'at last cease from your anger. Give us back our son.' But Achilles does not listen to her: he drags Hector to the ships and leaves him lying on the ground.
