Heaven. When Trygaegus reaches heaven, he meets Hermes, messenger of the gods, and discovers that Zeus has “washed his hands” of the Greeks and left control of heaven to the god of War, who has buried the goddess Peace.
Tomb of Peace. Trygaegus goes to the Tomb of Peace and after some difficulty with various helpers from other Greek city-states and other occupations, he calls upon his fellow farmers to aid him in hoisting Peace out of her tomb. They do so and return to Trygaegus’s farm with Peace and her two handmaidens, Harvest Fruits and Celebration. At the farm a marriage is celebrated to ensure the ongoing fertility of Peace.
