What does Achilles stand for?
Self aggandisement, violence, courage, warfare, murder, sulkiness, woman and child abuse.
first he was going to stand up to Achilles, then he got scared and started running aroung the city (Troy). Athena tricked him, so he went to face Achilles. he then begged Achilles to let his people have his (Hector's) body if he died. Achilles refused. so then they fought, but it was pretty short, Achilles pretty much just killed him. Then all the Acheans came to stab Hector...
Athena tricked Hector by turning into his favorite brother, Deiphobos. As Deiphobos, Athena told Hector to stand and fight Achilles since "he" would be by Hector's side. Therefore, with the additional courage gained by knowing his brother was at his side, Hector decided to stand against Achilles instead of going back into Troy.
Achilles and Hector fought with each other when Hector killed Achilles' friend Patroclus, and Achilles won the bet Hector asked. Hector placed a curse on Achilles, and Achilles stabbed his feet, then dragged him around town to show he won. Achilles dragged the corpse of Hector around the city walls.
it means that although Achilles is not present, his presence is still felt through his influence on those who are. Achilles makes this statement to Hector after mortally wounding him to avenge his friend, Patroclus, whom Hector had killed while Patroclus wore Achilles armor. Achilles was not present in battle when Hector killed his friend, yet Achilles influenced the battle and Hector should have known that Achilles would avenge the act and kill Hector. Save
