Hektor entered Troy daughters and wives rushed to him with questions about
friends, sons, husbands, brothers... "Pray to the gods!" he
said to each. He went on to his mother's apartments in Priam's
palace. She offered him wine which he refused. He bid her
to offer the most luxurous robe in Troy to Athena and to promise the
goddess 12 young, unblemished heifers.
