In Odysseus, Homer has created a multi-dimensional Greek hero, and not all of those dimensions are great. In the Iliad, Odysseus is depicted as brave, resourceful, intelligent, and skilled in debate, but there are episodes in which Odysseus exhibits some anti-Homeric-hero traits. For example, at one point in a battle, Nestor, one of the oldest and ablest of Greek warrior-kings, is trapped in his chariot's rubble as Trojan warriors descend upon him. Another Greek warrior-king, Diomedes, attempts to help Nestor, and as Odysseus passes by, Diomedes calls for his help. Odysseus, believing that Nestor cannot be saved, rushes on to the safety of the Greek ships. This is a practical response to the problem, but not a heroic one. In the Odyssey, when he is describing the Sirens to his men, he neglects to tell them that the Sirens pose a fatal threat despite his goal of telling his men that he wants them to go into this danger with "their eyes open," that is, fully understanding the dangers. In other instances, Odysseus's pride puts him and his men at risk. Undeniably, Odysseus is a Homeric hero, whose best traits are worthy of imitation, but he is also arguably the most complex of Homer's warrior-kings, whose flaws and strengths make up the whole man.
