let us give each other gifts, unforgettable gifts,
so any man may say, Trojan soldier or Argive,
"First they fought with heart-devouring hatred,
then they parted, bound by pacts of friendship."

– Homer

The Iliad, Book 7, lines 345-348. Sometimes on the battlefield, there is a fine line between enemies and friends. After agreeing to a truce in their duel until the next day because night falls, Hector suggests to Great Ajax that they exchange gifts. This shows that the Trojan hero believes his sworn enemy is due a certain respect and honor as a worthy opponent.
