(25) Whitman notes that Achilles, Patroklos, and Antilokhos are the only other major Greek warriors who do not witness their side's victory (1958, 199).
In that dialogue, popular scenes from the Iliad or Odyssey are singled out for mention by Socrates, such as Nestor's advice to Antilokhos from Iliad 23, or Odysseus at the moment when he leaps upon his threshold to kill the suitors from Odyssey 22, or the scene when Achilles lunges at Hektor in Iliad 22 (all featured at Ion 535b3-7), eac h of which might constitute a performable "part." Since I will argue that rhapsodes from the late sixth century onward performed against relatively fixed texts of Homer, the "parts" referred to by this scholiast, whatever they were, would have been familiar to the audience from the "complete" epics.
