This paper examines the role played by Menelaos in "Iliad" 17. A brief consideration of the findings of neo-analysis and type-scene analysis shows that Menelaus' prominence has not been adequately explained. In fact, he fulfills a pivotal function in the larger narrative: by defending Patroklos for Achilleus, Menelaos mediates the two major themes of the poem, Achilleus' wrath and the Trojan War.
