Meanwhile, Ajax's friends and family are having a party in relief, thinking he's come to reason, only to find out from a messenger that his brother Teucer has arrived and, by the way, prophecy says he really shouldn't leave the tent today. Everyone goes off in search of him, and eventually Tecmessa and Teucer find the body. Menelaus appears and orders them not to bury him in punishment for being a traitor, and leaves after a heated exhanged. Agamemnon appears to reiterate this, but Odysseus [[GuileHero intervenes]] on Ajax's behalf, not wanting to carry grudges beyond the grave or offend the gods further. Agamemnon lets him take responsibility and Teucer and Odysseus decide to become friends although Teucer will not let him help bury Ajax out of respect to the dead man's hatred of him.
