27th/35 years of the reign of Agamemnon (Αγαμεμνων: אגא-מהמנון), the son of King Atreus and queen Aerope (ערופה; "her necking") of Mycenae (מקנה) according to the Chronicon of Jerome. The Iliad tells the story about the quarrel between Agamemnon and Achilles in the final year of the war. Agamemnon stole an attractive slave called Briseis, one of the spoils of war, from Achilles. Achilles, the greatest warrior of the age, withdrew from battle in response to Agamemnon's supposedly evil deed and allegedly put the Greek armies at risk of losing the war.
