Briseis to Achilles

THE DEPARTURE OF BRISEIS FROM THE TENT OF ACHILLES.

THE DEPARTURE OF BRISEIS FROM THE TENT OF ACHILLES.

The letter which you read comes from stolen Briseis,
Written with difficulty in Greek by her barbarian hand.
Whatever blots you see, her tears have made–
But tears, nevertheless, have the strength of a voice.

via Ovid’s Heroides.
