Athena hides in the crowd of people and perfects Odysseus' appearance, making him "taller and thicker." Athena does small things like this for Odysseus a lot throughout the books, showing her favoritism of Odysseus, and slight bias.
Athena looks for guidance
¨why do you ask and question me...? Was not this your own intention...?¨
People gather and eat. The dialog in this scene shows how woman were treated in the time period and how pride was a very important aspect of society, which caused Odysseus numerous problems. Both of these things where shown numerous times.

Athena stops the fighting
¨stop this quarrel...Zeus..may be angry with you¨

¨Our Father... will you first inflict evil...or will you establish friendship...?¨
Athena, while disguised Mentor tells Laetres to throw his spear. Once again showing the Gods influence on mans decisions
