anyone got predictoins for odyssey or mycenae

my teachers reckon the odyseey 15 marker will be on nostos or a themes, probs xenia or maybe even oikos and then one on the charcter of odysseus. No idea for myceane or the 8 markers but theres been a lot of penelope and telmachius so maybe someone like polythemus or even circe. I'm really hoping their isnt much decorative arts or nunaced question about a specfic moment in the odyssey, they are so hard
Are there any summaries to sources: Horace, Pliny and Juvenal?

the question "how important is the custom of hospitality (xenia) to odysseus's survival in the odyssey" came up in 2020 so maybe not xenia? unless it's not about oddyseus's survival, but what else could it be on 🤔🤔
Could be about the slaves or something on odysseus' stratagems
my teacher said a possible question on women. how useful they are to his journey

I really think it will be nostos and his journey home but yeah after seeing the festival question they are defo starting to repeat stuff, maybe xenia might be about characters as a whole, and how we view them in terms of how they confine to xenia. Also my teacher said there has been one on how the storytelling is exciting to the modern reader, so maybe one on ancient listener but i doubt it.
Roman city life was amazing!! Both 15 markers were beautiful especially the last one on Juvenal 🤩

What did everyone think of Homeric World? I thought the 15 markers were good but the opening page on Tiryns was a bit 🫣

tiryns was so hard, i couldnt remeber what else the galleries were used for apart from storage and said they killed people from above in the last question so is said it was a lookout which was so stupid of me. Also the 3 points on how is defensive i wrote its on a hill, but thats myceane i still hope it on a hill
