Homer designs the plane of the gods
according to the contemporary aristocratic world. Like the Assyrian great king, Zeus sees himself as the executor of the inevitable fate.
Like the princes of the small Cilician states, the individual gods act with relative independence, without ultimately being able to influence the fatefully predestined events.
In the beginning, the divine great king Zeus granted the Trojans chances of victory, but the mother goddess Hera watched with Argus eyes that her Greek shooters (who worship the mother-goddess Cilikians) would not be shipwrecked.
She resembles Naqia – Zakutu, the chief wife of Sanherib, who had successfully pursued the succession of her son Asarhaddon with all means at her disposal.
