You are AGAMEMNON. You sacrifice a fatted five-year-old ox to Zeus, and pray that he'll fix it for you to take Troy before nightfall. He enjoys the sacrifice, but ignores the prayer. Gods can do what they like. After a meal, you marshall the troops for battle, looking like a bull in a herd of cows. The Greeks emerge on to the plain like flocks of birds gathering in a water-meadow.
