GREEK MYTHOLOGY MEME | [7/7] MORTAL MYTHOLOGICAL FIGURES: CHRYSEIS

Chryseis was the daughter of Chrȳsēs, priest of Apollo on the island of Chrȳsē near Troy. When the Greeks sacked the island they gave her to Agamemnon as his gift of honour. He took her as his concubine, declaring that he preferred her to his wife Clytemnestra, and refused the rich ransom offered by Chryses. Chryses prayed to Apollo, and after the Greeks suffered in consequence nine days of pestilence Agamemnon agreed to return Chryseis on condition that he should receive in compensation the girl Briseis who had been given as a prize of war to Achilles.
