"Iliad tells of the conquest of Troy"

FALSE
Iliad reveals the wrath of Achilles or, more specifically, the quarrel between Agamemnon, leader of the army, and the hero Achilles, in the ten years of the siege of Troy. Time mentioned in the story sums up exactly 60days. Epic ends with Hector's corpse claim by King Priam. Everything we know about the conquest of Troy and Achille's death is not from the Iliad, but has other sources.
