Toxaris, a debate between a Greek and a Scythian 3 question report

I’m trying to study for my History course and I need some help to understand this question.

At least 2 FULL pages, double spaced.

Toxaris questions-answer all three.

1. Toxaris argues that the Greeks talk a lot about friendship, but fail to practice it. Do the stories told by Mnesippus bear him out? Evaluate.

2.Did the Scythians perform acts of heroism out of love for their friends, or because they were compelled by the oaths they had sworn? Are their friendships more solid than those of the Greeks?

3. If you were the judge of this debate, whom would you have chosen as the winner and why? Give specific reasons for your choice.
