The Aetos Dios was a golden, giant eagle. This eagle served as Zeus' personal messenger and it was also his animal companion. That is one of the reasons that eagles are frequently correlated to Zeus. In The Odyssey, Zeus sends eagles soaring through the air as omens of death, according to Halitherses. Telemachus says that two eagles that come down from the mountains and tear each other to pieces.
I would contend that this statement is actually TRUE.
Explanation: Just to elaborate a little on the answer, it can be added that this action takes place in Book 2, in which Telemachus prepares for his voyage. Telemachus is talking to a group of Achaeans, and one of them, Antinous, blames his mother Penelope for deceiving the suitors and requests him to force her to marry one of them. Telemachus rejects this idea, and, pleading the immortal gods, warns the Achaeans that one day they will die in his house. Immediately thereafter Zeus replies by sending out the two eagles, who fly over the crowd and beat their wings with "destruction in their eyes," and an old warrior named Halitherses makes the prophecy that Odysseus is on his way and plans a "disastrous fate" for the suitors.
I beleive the answer is "Zeus sends two eagles soaring through the air as omens of death."
The correct answer is "Zeus sends two eagles soaring through the air as omens of death".
The final battle of the epic poem "Odyssey" by Homer is foreshadowed by using the symbol of two eagles that were send by Zeus. These two eagles were omens of death, which flew down from the mountains tearing each other apart into pieces as they flew over the crowd. The prophet Halitherses interpreted this event as an omen of death send by Zeus.
