ild.21 But his sister the huntress Diana, patroness of wild beasts, was very angry with him and said, "So you would fly, Far Darter, and hand victory over to Neptune with a cheap vaunt to boot.
ild.22 Achilles was greatly angered and said, "You have baulked me, Far Darter, most malicious of all Gods, and have drawn me away from the wall, where many another man would have bitten the dust ere he got within Ilius; you have robbed me of great glory and have saved the Trojans at no risk to yourself, for you have nothing to fear, but I would indeed have my revenge if it were in my power to do so.
