I just finished re-reading the Iliad. The first time I read it was years ago. In that version I think I read that Chryseis was a priestess of Apollo. In the version that I just read, she is only the daughter of a priest of Apollo.
I am curious, does anybody know;
Who/what Chryseis was before the Greeks captured her?
Was she a priestess of Apollo herself or just the daughter of a priest of Apollo?
Could she have been a member of the priest class?
(In The Histories, Herodotus refers to a caste system in Egypt during a time when there was considerable contact between the Greeks and Egyptians. The Egyptian caste system had seven different castes including a warrior class at the top and an untouchable class at the bottom)
Does her status vary from translation to translation?
Did the Greeks ever sack any temple of Apollo anywhere?
