The Iliad - Homer,Bernard Knox,Robert Fagles At Zeus's order, Athena gives Achilles the food of the gods - by putting straight in his chest without him noticing.

Hera prophesies his violent death but Achilles is not deterred; he's heard it before and knows he's not coming back from Troy alive.

Antilochus gives Achilles the news he dreads. Thetis comes from the sea to  talk to the leader of the Myrmidons.
