Phoenix plays an important role in Book 9 of the Iliad of Homer. After telling the story, Phoenix again asks Achilles to "cast aside thine anger" and heed the supplication of his comrads in arms and return to the battle. Instead he decided to leave his father's kingdom. For a discussion of the embassy scene see Shapiro , pp. For nine days some of his friends and family kept watch over him to prevent his leaving, but finally on the tenth day he managed to escape, and fleeing through Hellas, Phoenix came to Phthia , where king Peleus , the father of Achilles, took in Phoenix, and treated him like a son. Achilles , the Greeks' greatest warrior, has withdrawn from the war because of his great anger at his ill treatment by the Greek commander Agamemnon.
