Julian Glover: Triopas
Agamemnon : [approaches king] Good day for the crows.
Triopas : Remove your army from my land.
Agamemnon : Why, I like your land, I think we'll stay. I like your soldiers too.
Triopas : They won't fight for you.
Agamemnon : That's what the Messenians said, and the Acardians, and the Opeians, now they all fight for me.
Triopas : You can't have the whole world, Agamemnon. It's too big, even for you.
Agamemnon : I don't want to watch another massacre. Let's settle this war in the old manner. Your best fighter against my best.
Triopas : And if my man wins?
Agamemnon : We'll leave Thessaly for good.
Triopas : Boagrius!
[cheers from Thessalian army. Boagrius comes out from the centre of the army]
Agamemnon : Achilles!
Triopas : Boagrius has this effect on many heroes.
Agamemnon : Be careful who you insult, old king.
Greek Soldier : My king, Achilles is not with the army.
Agamemnon : Where is he?
Greek Soldier : I sent a boy to look for him.
