On the contrary, planet Venus on the 12th of November 1301 yr B. was not visible in the east horizon because Venus rose at LT, when sunrise was at LT. Moreover, the planet Venus’ appearance in the east horizon three days after Patroclus’ death is indicated by the Homeric text in Il.23,226-228 (‘Ήμος δ’ εωσφόρος είσι φόως ερέων επί γαίαν, όν τε μέτα κροκόπεπλος υπείρ άλα κίδναται ηώς, τήμος πυρκαιή εμαραίνετο, παύσατο δε φλόξ.-But at the hour when the star of morning goeth forth to herald light over the face of the earth—the star after which followeth saffronrobed Dawn and spreadeth over the sea—even then grew the burning faint, and the flame the reof died down).
Venus was visible in the westward direction and set at LT whereas thesunset was at LT, according to Starry Night 6 Pro Plus software calculations (2006). However, the annular solar eclipse of the 6th June 1218 yr B. observed in Troy with significant obscuration of 75.2 %, occurred 10 years before the solar eclipse’s occurrence in the Ionian Islands on the 30th October 1207 B. Indeed, Planet Venus was visible in the Trojan sky before dawn on the 9th June 1218 yr B. because it rose at LT when the sunrise was at LT according to Starry Night program. More- over, we read in the Iliad (Il.2.134-138) that a wise man, called Calchas (Κάλχας) said that ‘so shall we fight Henriksson (2012) mentioned that Alaksandu was Wilusa’s King in accordance with the Hittite archives as Starke (2001) published.
There were celebratory scenes among the scores of supporters who had gathered outside the court in Sarajevo, the capital of the country where Oric is regarded by many as a war hero.
It is not associated with the suitors killing time, at late noon.
Moreover, the planet Venus was visible in the eastward direction five days before this solar eclipse in accordance with Homeric text (Od.13.93-95). It started at 14.10 LT, peaked at 15.45 LT and ended at 17.07 LT and fits exactly with the Patroclus’ death at noon, as it is described in the Iliad.
Henriksson (2012) indicated the occurrence of another solar eclipse described in the Iliad (Il.17.366-377) and proposed the total solar eclipse of the 11th June 1312 yr B. (Gregorian calendar) based on his own calculations, whereas in accordance with the NASA’s site Xavier Jubier “Five Millennium (-1999 to 3000) Canon of Solar Eclipses Database” the corresponding date of this solar eclipse is the 24th June 1312 yr B. In this paper the above reference will be called NASA catalog (Stephenson and Houlden (1986), Stephenson and Morrison (1984), Stephenson (1997), Espenak and Meeus (2006) and (2009a, b, c), Morrison and Stephenson (2004)).
However, Henriksson ignored to connect his proposed date with the solar eclipse’s date described in Odyssey after 10 years (because the Homeric epics clearly mention that Odysseus was absent for 20 years from Ithaca and the Trojan War duration was 10 years).
C., respectively, and Troy’s occupation in 1312 yr B. Additionally Henriksson (2012) writes: ‘According to the Iliad, Κing Priam of Troy had two sons, Hector and Paris (Alexander). After Hector’ death, Priam’s sons were reduced to nine (Il.24.247-252).
