When a stranger showed up at the door the landlord did not he could deny him hospitality otherwise the wrath of Zeus would be attracted. An example fundamental to how important hospitality was at the time of the ancient Greeks is shown to us in the episode of the Iliad in which Elena, wife of Menelaus (King of Sparta), is kidnapped by Ettore (Principe Troiano). The abduction of his wife is a great affront to Menelaus, especially because Ettore was his guest when he persuaded Elena to escape with he. Both the foreigner and the host were called "guest". When a man provided hospitality to another, the families of both were bound forever. In fact, he who was was hosted should have returned, welcoming the man in his house he had received or his descendant. The host families, to be sure to meet again, yes they exchanged "symbols" (from the verb συμβαλλω): a wood or a stone, they were broken apart half and one part was handed over to the host man and the other to the stranger, so in the case in which a descendant of the two needed a shelter the two halves would have been reunited, to demonstrate the authentic belonging to the host family.
