Iliad I, lines 193-198

193      As he was mulling it over within his mind and spirit,
            pulling his hefty blade from its sheath, Athena descended
            down from the heavens; for Hera the white-armed goddess had sent her,
            equally loving them both in her heart, and concerned for them likewise.
            Standing behind him, she grasped the golden hair of Pelides,
            only appearing to him, so that none of the others could see her.
