To the Greeks, moreover, the notion of xenia frames a form of ritualized friendship consisting of rules of behavior associated with respect, protection, and guidance that must not be violated. For instance, respect between host and guest, especially genuine displays of honor by the host at receiving the guest, is a longstanding staple of Greek hospitality. The true meaning of Greek hospitality, moreover, involves not only equalizing a stranger/guest with the host, but also making the her/him feel protected and taken care of, and at the end of the hosting encounter, even providing guidance to the next destination.
