In Greek mythology, Chryseis was a Trojan woman, daughter of Chryses. During the Trojan War, Agamemnon took her as a war prize and taunted her father, a priest of Apollo when he attempted to buy her back. An oracle of Apollo then sent a plague sweeping through the Greek armies and Agamemnon was forced to give Chryseis back in order to end it.
