Abstract: Abstract: This paper aims to study the meeting of Diomedes and Glaucus in Book 6 of the Iliad in relation to the practice of the religious and cultural code of xenia (guest-friendship), which the ancient Greeks formulated as the major institution for consolidating the inter-household and intercity relationships. In the literary world of the Iliad, xenia is vividly represented in several places as the Greek warriors' respect for the cultural institution and for the philosophy of ethics and morality that lies behind it. The episode of Diomedes and Glaucus' confrontation with each other on the battlefield in the Trojan War from Book 6, the Iliad, is examined as an example to demonstrate the importance of this ethical code. The description of the two great warriors' refusal to fight with each other on the battlefield provides a social and cultural space to elucidate the significance of this religious and cultural custom. Through this, the epic narrative transforms the battlefield into a social space of production where ethics and the religious and cultural code reinforce each other's necessity and importance in a society that obeys not just the edicts of the kings but also the law of Olympus.
