This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Briseis comes from Lyrnessus, and is captured by the Aecheans before the siege of Troy. Briseis is a Trojan priestess and Hector's cousin, captured during the attack on Apollo's temple.
   Agamemnon is inspired to attack Troy by a dream sent by the gods, who want to bring his army misery for taking Briseis away from Achilles. Agamemnon attacks Troy out of his own greed and ambition. Briseis is not taken away from Achilles until after the war has begun.
   Paris and Menelaus offer to duel each other and end the war before it begins. Achilles's myrmidons sack Apollo's temple before the rest of the Greek forces arrive, effectively starting the war.
   The duel between Paris and Menelaus is interrupted by Aphrodite, who takes Paris back into the city walls. Menelaus survives the war and later appears in the Odyssey. Menelaus is about to kill Paris when Hector intervenes and kills Menelaus.
   Priam is led by Hermes to Achilles's tent to recover Hector's body. Priam claims he found the tent alone.
