went to his own home seeking his wife, Andromakhe but not finding her
there returned to the Skaian Gates.
Andromakhe ran to
him with their son and said: "Oh,
my wild one, your bravery will be your own undoing! No pity for
our child, poor little one, or me in my sad lot..."
these many things beset my mind no less than yours. But I should
die of shame before our Trojan men and noblewomen if like a coward I
avoided battle, nor am I moved to..."
Andromakhe returned to her home
and she mourned her husband as if he was already dead.
Paris joined Hektor and they
set out for the Skaian Gates and war.
