The main focus of the commentary on book 24 of the Iliad is the interpretation of one of the most exciting and moving scenes in the epic: how the Trojan King, Priam, makes his way to his deadly enemy Achilles, at whose hands his son Hector had died; how the god Hermes guides him almost mystically into the Greek camp; how Achilles, at the end of an emotional encounter, invites Priam to dine with him and hands over Hector's body for burial.
