The article reflects on the static position taken by Odysseus during the embassy to Troy described in Il. 3.312, taking into account the points of view of ancient commentators. In particular, in the view of the debate on oratorical gestures that contrasted Aeschines and Demosthenes, we discuss the comment of Eustathius of Thessalonica who considered Odysseus as a precursor of performative attitudes that will be typical of the orators of the classical age.
