First is when Odysseus and Diomedes planned their strategy when it came to trying to catch the intruder where in this case is Dolon. The plan they devised are seen in the following lines. “The two conversed in whispers, they lay stull flattened among dead bodies of the path, while the unwary man came running by. But when he has passed them fifty yards so- a fields width, say, a team of mules could plow, being faster at this work than oxen, dragging a bolted plowshare in a furrow- both ran after him.
