Helenus tells Hector to go back into Troy
You are HELENUS, Hector's brother. As a religious expert (augur) you believe that prayer is now the only thing that can save Troy. You suggest that Hector goes back to the city to organise the women. They must go to Athena's temple, and give her a new robe, and pray for her to have pity on Troy, and the Trojans' wives and little children. Hector, after rallying the troops, goes into the city to get his mother to organise the women.
