5. Nine Years of War
Proclus Chrestomathia: καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα Ἀχιλλεὺς Ἑλένην ἐπιθυμεῖ θεάσασθαι, καὶ συνήγαγεν αὐτοὺς εἰς τὸ αὐτὸ Ἀφροδίτη καὶ Θέτις. εἶτα ἀπονοστεῖν ὡρμημένους τοὺς Ἀχαιοὺς Ἀχιλλεὺς κατέχει.
After this, Achilles desires to see Helen, and Aphrodite and Thetis bring the two together to the same locale. Then, when the Greeks are eager to return home, Achilles checks them.
Πηλεΐδην ἐκόμιζε πόδας ταχὺν ἔξοχον ἀνδρῶν
παῖδ’ ἔτ’ ἐόντ’· οὐ γάρ μιν ἀρηΐφιλος Μενέλαος
90 νίκησ’ οὐδέ τις ἄλλος ἐπιχθονίων ἀνθρώπων
μνηστεύων ‘Ελένην, εἴ μιν κίχε παρθένον οὖσαν
οἴκαδε νοστήσας ἐκ Πληίου ὠκὺς Ἀχιλλεύς·
ἀλλ’ ἄρα τὴν πρίν γ’ ἔσχεν κτλ.
Euripides Helen 99 goes one better in asserting that in fact Achilles did join the wooing. 
There seems to be considerable confusion in the collective scholarly mind as to precisely which of the available traditions concerning the daughters of Anius actually appeared in the Cypria. For a recent survey of the evidence see T. Marin, “Le Enotrope, Palamede, e la sosta dei Greci a Delos nei Cypria,” Lexis 27 (2009): 365–380, who handily summarizes previous hypotheses. See also R. Fowler, Early Greek Mythography, vol. 2: Commentary (Oxford 2013) 531–532 (who rightly says that “the tale of Anius and his … daughters … has a folktale ring”) and Hornblower’s commentary on Lycophron, general index s.v. “Anius.” Any attempt to clarify the issue must of necessity start from the evidence of the scholion upon Lycophron which is our fragment’s source. Even here there is generous scope for ambiguity, since (to quote Jacoby’s note on the fragment of Pherecydes likewise enshrined in Tzetzes’ comment) “ob auch die genealogie … Ph. gehört und ober nach den Kyprien erzählte bleibt zweifelhaft” (2.425).
Proclus Chrestomathia: ἐπειτα ἐστι Παλαμήδους θάνατος.
Next comes the death of Palamedes.
Proclus Chrestomathia: κἄπειτα ἀπελαύνει τὰς Αἰνείου βόας, καὶ Λυρνησσὸν καὶ Πήδασον πορθεῖ καὶ συχνὰς τῶν περιοικίδων πόλεων.
Then Achilles drives away the cattle of Aeneas and sacks the towns of Lyrnessus and Pedasus and all of the adjacent cities.
Proclus Chrestomathia: καὶ Tρωίλον φονεύει.
And Achilles kills Troilus.
The earliest attested mentions of Aeneas’ wife give her the name Eurydice. And not only the earliest: Ennius Annales fr. xxix (37 Skutsch) knows her by that name too. For a list of the authors who employ the later and more familiar tradition whereby she is called Creusa see R. G. Austin’s commentary on Aeneid II (1964) p. 288, and O. Skutsch on the Ennian fragment cited above. Creusa is generally regarded as the daughter of Priam: whose daughter Eurydice was supposed to be we have no evidence to say. On the important but insoluble problem of when Eurydice was replaced by Creusa see Davies and Finglass on Stesichorus fr. 110. Rzach (2383.41–44  ) supposes the context of the present fragment to have been Aphrodite’s selection of Aeneas to accompany Paris on his visit to Sparta (see page 94 above). In fact the Cypria may have had cause to mention Aeneas’ wife on any number of occasions.
Proclus Chrestomathia: Λυκάονα τε Πάτροκλος εἰς Λῆμνον ἀγαγὼν ἀπεμπολεῖ.
Patroclus takes Lycaon and sells him into slavery at Lemnos.
Proclus Chrestomathia: καὶ ἐκ τῶν λαφύρων Ἀχιλλεὺς μὲν Bρισηίδα γέρας λαμβάνει, Χρυσηίδα δ’ Ἀγαμέμνων.
And from the spoils of war Achilles takes Briseis as booty prize and Agamemnon takes Chryseis.
Proclus Chrestomathia: καὶ Διὸς βουλὴ ὅπως ἐπικουφίσηι τοὺς Τρῶας Ἀχιλλέα τῆς συμμαχίας τῆς Ἑλληνικῆς ἀποστήσας.
And the plan of Zeus as to how he may lighten the burden of the Trojans by causing Achilles to withdraw from the Greek alliance.
(i) is probably the most popular explanation. Thus Wilamowitz (Ilias und Homer 245) concluded that “In dieser schwächlichen Erfindung steckt nichts anderes als ein kümmerliches Bindeglied,” and further observed (245–246) that much of what has immediately preceded in the summary (Achilles’ stealing of Aeneas’ cattle, his sacking of Lyrnessus and Pedasus, the selling abroad of Lycaon by Patroclus, the division of Briseis and Chryseis as spoil) also ties up with Iliadic events. But these generalizations could be applied with equal force to (ii).
Proclus Chrestomathia: καὶ κατάλογος τῶν τοῖς Τρωσὶ συμμαχησάντων.
