Odysseus is very hungry!
You are ODYSSEUS. You say the men can't possibly fight on empty stomachs, without their breakfast. You suggest the army eats, while the gifts are produced, along with Briseis, and returned to Achilles. You tell Agamemnon he must swear publicly that he has not slept with her. He agrees, and tells you to oversee the handover.
