Ο Οπόεις (Οπούς) πήρε μέρος στον πόλεμο και περιλαμβάνεται στον Ομηρικό Κατάλογο των Νεών (Ιλ. Β 531, Σ 326).
Μενοιτιάδης, δηλαδή γιος του Μενοίτιου (Ιλ. Σ 326 κ.ε.), φίλος του Αχιλλέα, τον οποίο ακολούθησε στην Τροία. Οταν ήταν νέος κατέφυγε στον οίκο του Πηλέα στη Φθία, λόγω του φόνου του γιου του Αμφιδάμαντα (Ιλ. Λ 765 κ.ε., Ψ 87 κ.ε.). Τον σκότωσε ο Εκτορας (Ιλ. Π 818 κ.ε.) και έγιναν επικήδειοι αγώνες προς τιμήν του (Ιλ. Ψ).
(Patroklos) and Patrocles (Patrokles). The penult is almost always long in the Iliad, Patroclus once only in vocative. Son of Menoetius and Sthenele, the bosom friend of Achilles. While still a boy Patroclus involuntarily slew Clysonymus, son of Amphidamas. In consequence of this accident he was taken by his father to Peleus at Phthia, where he was educated together with Achilles. He is said to have taken part in the expedition against Troy on account of his attachment to Achilles. He fought bravely against the Trojans until his friend withdrew from the scene of action, when Patroclus followed his example. But when the Greeks were hard pressed, he begged Achilles to allow him to put on his armour, and with his men to hasten to the assistance of the Greeks. Achilles granted the request, and Patroclus succeeded in driving back the Trojans and extinguishing the fire which was raging among the ships. He slew many enemies, and thrice made an assault upon the walls of Troy; but he was suddenly struck by Apollo, and became senseless. In this state Euphorbus ran him through with his lance from behind, and Hector gave him the last and fatal blow. Hector also took possession of his armour. A long struggle now ensued between the Greeks and Trojans for the body of Patroclus; but the former obtained possession of it, and brought it to Achilles, who was deeply grieved, and vowed to avenge the death of his friend. Thetis protected the body with ambrosia against decomposition until Achilles had leisure solemnly to burn it with funeral sacrifices. His ashes were collected in a golden urn which Dionysus had once given to Thetis, and were deposited under a mound, where the remains of Achilles were subsequently buried. Funeral games were celebrated in his honour. Achilles and Patroclus met again in the lower world; or, according to others, they continued after their death to live together in the island of Leuce.
