Argumentum A Homeri Compositionis

Argumentum A Homeri Compositionis
Chryses sacerdos Apollinis accedit ad navale Graecorum, volens redimere filiam suam Chryseidem: non recuperans autem, sed & cum contumelia expulsus ab Agamemnone, precatus est Apollinem contra Graecos. Peste autem orta, & multis (ut consentaneum est) pereuntibus, concionem Achilles coëgit. Calchante autem aperiente veram causam, & iubente Achille placare Deum: Agamemnon iratus, altercatus est adversus Achillem, & ipsi praemium abstulit Briseïda. Is vero irascitur Graecis. Thetis autem, filio precante, in coelum ascendens, petiit a Iove, ut Troianos superiores Graecis faceret: Iuno autem, hoc cognito, altercata est adversus Iovem, quousque ipsos reconciliavit Vulcanus vinum fundens in poculo aureo. Illi autem, reliquum diei convivantes, in somnum vertuntur.

Ὑπόθεσις τῆς Α‘ τοῦ Ὁμήρου Ῥαψῳδίας
Χρύσης ἱερεὶς τοῦ Ἀπόλλονον παραγίγνεται ἐπὶ τὸν ναύσταθμον τῶν Ἑλλήνων, βουλόμενος λυτρώσασθαι τὴν θυγατέρα αὑτοῦ Χρυσηΐδα· οὐκ ἀπολαβὼν δὲ, ἀλλὰ καὶ μεθ’ ὕβρεως ἀποδιωχθεὶς ὑπὸ Ἀγαμέμνονος, ἤυξατο τῷ Ἀπόλλωνι κατὰ Ἑλλήνων. Λοιμοῦ δὲ γενομένου, καὶ πολλῶν (ὡς εἰκὸς) διαφθειρομένων ἐκκλησίαν Ἀχιλλεὺς συνήγαγε. Καλχαντος δὲ διαφήσαντος τὴν ἀληθῆ αἰτίαν καὶ κελεύσαντος Ἀχιλλέως ἐξιλάσκεσθαι τὸν θεὸν Ἀγαμέμνων ὀργιθεὶς, διενέχθη πρὸς τὸν Ἀχιλλέα, καὶ αὐτοῦ τὸ γέρας ἀπεσπασε τὴν Βρισηΐδα. Ὁ δὲ ὀργίζεται τοῖς Ἑλλησι. Θέτις δὲ, τοῦ υἱοῦ δεηθέντος, εἰς ὄλυμπον ἀνελθούσα, ᾐτήσατο παρὰ τοῦ Διὸς, ὅπως τοὺς τρῶας ἐπικρατεστέρους τῶν Ἑλλήνων ποιήσῃ· Ἥρα δὲ, τοῦτο γνοῦσα, διενέχθη πρὸς τὸν Δία, ἕως αὐτοὶς διέλυσεν Ἥφασιστος οἰνιχοήσας ἐν ἐκπώματι χρυσείῳ. Οἱ δὲ, τὸ λοιπὸν τὴς ἡμέρας εὐωχηθέντες, εἰς ὕπνον τρέπονται.
