Pyraechmes came from the city of Amydin. Although Homer mentions Pyraechmes as the leader of the Paeonians early in the Iliad, in the Trojan ccatalogue he plays a minor role compared to the more illustrious Asteropaeus, a later arrival to the conflict.
Pyraechmes was killed in battle by Patroclus, who was dressed in Achilles’ armour. Patroclus routed the panicked Trojans, and the first person he killed was Pyraechmes.
