However, "a booty" seems to also be a direct object, so I'm guessing that it is also in the plural accusative. But since there doesn't appear to be a conjunctive-like relationship (direct object one AND direct object two) between Achaeans and booty, what part of speech is "booty"? What is the justification that they are both in the accusative?
