What does the following quote from Elpenor tell us about Greek culture? No, burn me in full armor, all my harness, heap my mound by the churning gray surf— a man whose luck ran out— so even men to come will learn my story. (11, 82-85) * The Greeks thought that enough fame could grant immortality to the dead. The Greeks thought that a blood sacrifice could animate the dead. The Greeks thought that a proper burial was essential to the happiness of the dead. The Greeks thought that being buried with armor would provide protection from other spirits in Hades.
