The Trojan War
I will not return Chryseis.
Homer was a Greek poet who wrote the Ilian and the Odyssey.
“The Iliad” begins nearly ten years into the seige of Troy by the Greek forces, led by Agamemnon, King of Mycenae. The Greeks are quarrelling about whether or not to return Chryseis, a Trojan captive of King Agamemnon, to her father, Chryses, a priest of Apollo. When Agamemnon refuses and threatens to ransom the girl to her father, the offended Apollo plagues them with a pestilence. http://www.ancient-literature.com/greece_homer_iliad.html
The Greeks, at the behest of the warrior-hero Achilles, force Agamemnon to return Chryseis in order to appease Apollo and end the pestilence. http://www.ancient-literature.com/greece_homer_iliad.html
