When 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.
