The story of the Siege of Troy in the Iliad immortalised by Homer gives us a striking example of a hero in Achilles. When the noble king Priam and the long wrathful Achilles finally meet, these bitterest of enemies gaze at each other soul to soul and reach a state of compassion in which they mourn each other's losses.
