Iliad: The Statistics

In the Iliad, there are a total of 263 mentioned deaths (52 on the Achaean side and 211 on the Trojan side), and here’s a graph showing the number of deaths by chapter.

Additionally, if you’re interested in where the fatal blow happens, here’s a chart, excluding deaths for which the location of the fatal blow is completely unspecified and the five instances where people got bonked in the head by rocks, etc.

Also, Diomedes is notable for producing the most carnage, killing 30 Trojans, wounding one of them in addition, wounding two gods, and only getting wounded himself once.
