iliad 20 marker was on importance of xenia, and the 30 marker was whether hector behaves in a more human than heroic way.
odyssey 20 marker was again on importance of xenia, and the 30 marker was on whether goddesses and women are the clever ones in the odyssey rather than oddyseus.
aeneid 20 marker was whether dido was 'admirable but unlikeable'. 30 marker was that the aeneid is completely depressing.

oh yeah sorry i forgot - the 20 marker was on the chorus and if it makes any contribution to the success of a greek comedy, and the 30 markeres were on whether oedipus deserved his sufferiing and made it worse or if the theme of family is more important in oedipus or bacchae.
