Helen[edit]

Uh, I know this sounds counterintuitive since she's called "Helen of Troy," but Helen was actually "Greek," or rather Spartan — the whole point is that she was a Greek woman kidnapped or seduced by a Trojan man and taken to Troy, causing the Greek forces to come after her.

Epeius[edit]

And Epeius, he built the horse. Definitely not a Trojan. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.13.165.68 (talk) 02:22, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

Iliad vs. Trojan War[edit]

Is this Template based strictly on Homer's Iliad? If yes, then certain participants should not be included, such as Palamedes, who was never mentioned by Homer. --Odysses () 00:36, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

Neoptolemus was in the Iliad?[edit]

I read The Iliad about nine years ago and don't recall Neoptolomus' name even being mentioned in the book. I don't recall even knowing that Achilles had a son until I read further into Greek mythology.

That being said, am I completely wrong here? If not, then Neoptolomus' name should be removed from this template. Darwin's Bulldog (talk) 01:43, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
