Book 23

“At the time when the morning star announces the daylight
all over the earth and dawn spread its saffron glow
upon the wide waters, the flames began to die down,
and the two winds flew back, and htey crossed the Thracian sea,
stirring it into a frenzy. Achilles turned
away from the smoldering pyre and sank down, exhausted,
in an instant sweet sleep descended upon him.”
(23.225-231)
