The Iliad is an epic poem recounting significant events
during a portion of the final year of the Trojan War
— the Greek siege of the city of Ilion (Troy) — hence
the title (“pertaining to Ilios”). In twenty-four scrolls,
containing 15,693 lines of dactylic hexameter, it tells
the wrathful withdrawal from battle of Achilles, the
premiere Greek warrior, after King Agamemnon
dishonoured him — an internecine quarrel disastrous
to the Greek cause.
