King Priam shows honor by meeting with Achilles face to face to discuss the proper handling/return/funeral pyre of his son Hector.Achilles moved by his humility,agrees to a temporary truce to complete the traditional time of mourning. They sit down to eat and and respectfully end the meeting after the meal. In this case,Priam's humility and courage showed honor.
