"Very different [to Orpheus’] was the reward of the true love of Achilles towards his lover Patroclus - his lover and not his beloved (the notion that Patroclus was the beloved one is a foolish error into which Aeschylus has fallen, for Achilles was surely the fairer of the two, fairer also than all the other heroes; and, as Homer informs us, he was still beardless, and far younger)."
Plato, Symposium (179e)
