Some of the stories of the hero would tell events that were yet to happen. One of the better known describes the conquests of Henry (the hero would call him Hermes), the merchant who became guide of the city almost two thousand years later. As the city troops were losing the siege of Marmara, he descended, elderly and blind, in the heart of the battle, urging the fleet to fight from the prow of his ship.

It is widely disputed whether the hero had the gift of foresight, or his stories had the power to motivate some to enact his dreams.
