When Patroclus had finished,
he put his arm around Eurypylus' chest, then took
that shepherd of his people to his hut.  Seeing them,
an aide put down some ox hides.  Settling him there,
with a knife Patroclus cut the razor-sharp arrow
from his thigh, then with warm water washed the black blood off.
He put some bitter root onto his hands and rubbed it in, 
something to relieve the hurt, remove all pain.
The wound then dried, and blood stopped flowing.
