Podes

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Podes was the son of Eetion in Greek mythology, and thus the brother of Andromache, wife of Hector, whom he is said to have befriended.[1] He fought on the side of the Trojans in the Trojan War, and was killed by Menelaus. However, in Book 6 of the Iliad Andromache claims that her seven brothers have been killed by Achilles. This contradiction is not resolved.
