Name that Ancient Greek writing convention: The "Gearing Up" scene.

Back when I was reading The Iliad for a college course my teacher mentioned that there was a specific Greek term for the trope wherein a character is gearing up; each piece of armor and weaponry is described as it is equipped, and its provenance and significance is given.
Anybody here remember what the term is?
