So Patroclus put on his armor and rode out to battle, but the plan was for him to turn back on his armor and rode out to battle, but the plan was for him to turn back around but Patroclus rode into battle in frenzy slaughtering people left and right until he came upon Hector.
Apollo threw off Patroclus’s helmet so Hector could see he was not Achilles. So Hector speared Patroclus in the belly. Patroclus uttered a prophecy saying that Hector would be slaughtered by Achilles in this same spot.
