Hector versus Achilles: Who’s the Hero?

Who’s the hero of The Iliad? Is it Achilles or Hector? Or should they both be considered heroes?​ If we are to answer these questions, we need to know what is meant by heroism. We also need to know what Homer meant by heroism. Was the pagan Greek understanding of heroism different from ours? If so, how was it different and does this difference impact our understanding of Homer’s epic?
