Publisher's Summary

The Iliad, together with The Odyssey, is one of two ancient Greek epic poems traditionally attributed to Homer. The work is commonly dated to the 8th or 7th century BC, and many scholars believe it is the oldest extant work of literature in the Greek language, making it the first work of European literature. The story concerns events during the 10th and final year in the siege of the city of Troy by the Greeks. This version has been translated and set into English prose by Samuel Butler.

Roman not Greek

I have the actual book of The Iliad and at some points they do not go based on the book translated by Samuel Butler they use the roman names and not the Greek names as is written in the copy of the book I got so it is very confusing to hear one thing and read another
