Menoetiadem; Patrochis, the son of Menoetius, greatly beloved by Achilles. This hero, offended at Agamemnon, who had unjustly taken his captive Briseis from him, retired from the Grecian camp. Patroclus, appealing in his friend's armour to terrify the Trojans, was slain by Hector. Hence he is said to have fallen sub falsis armis.
