To the Ancient Greeks hospitality was a divine right.
The host was expected to make sure the needs of his guests were seen to.
The Ancient Greek term "xenia" or "Theoxenia" when a god was involved, expressed this ritualized guest-friendship relation.
In Greek society a person's ability to abide the laws to hospitality determined nobility and social standing.
