Idaios found the Greeks in an assembly before Agamemnon's ship.
He made Alexandros' offer to return the treasure with an extra
measure. He added that, even though the Trojans disagreed,
Helen would not be returned. Finally he sued for a truce to
gather and burn the dead.
There was a great hush.
At last Diomedes burst out: "Let no man here accept
treasure from Alexandros - nor Helen either. Even a child can
see the Trojans live already on the edge of doom!"
The Greek warriors roared their
Agamemnon agreed with the
warriors and agreed to the Trojan truce.
Idaios returned to the Trojan
and Dardan assembly and delivered his report.
