I hate that man like the very Gates of Death
who says one thing but hides another in his heart.

– Homer

The Iliad, Book 9, lines 378-379. This is Achilles’s reply when Odysseus conveys Agamemnon’s offer intending to end his quarrel with Achilles. It guarantees him treasure and the return of Briseis, with the king promising to swear an oath that he never slept with her. Achilles accuses his estranged king of being two-faced and expresses deep hatred for him.
