Nestor's palace was at sandy Pylos in the south west of the Peloponnese. It is almost certainly the Mycenaean palace which has been excavated at Englianos
You are NESTOR of Pylos.You have a captive audience and spin tales of your youth (at great length: how you single-handedly crushed your father's enemies), and of Achilles' youth. Of how his father Peleus brought him up always to be the best, to be better than everyone else. Of how Patroclus' father brought him up to set a good example to Achilles. "Why don't you talk some sense into him now?" And then the fatal suggestion: "Why not ask if you can borrow his armour and lead the Myrmidons into battle?"
