Funeral Games was about Patroclus's burial service. Achilles ordered his servants to pile wood by the shore. There they put Patroclus's dead body on the pile. Then his companions, as well as Achilles, put locks of hair on Patroclus. They slew several cattle, 4 chariot horses, 2 of Achilles favorite hounds and 12 Trojans in Patroclus's honor and laid them on the wood pile as well. Then they threw torches in the pile so it burned. Lastly, Achilles held the funeral games (almost like a mini-olympics), according to the custom.
