Not so this horse
This part in the saga is probably the most well known. The Trojan horse has been taught since we explored Greek Mythology. In many cases, I believe it is because the horse is truly a symbol of so many things.
- Things may not always be what they appear
- To be wary of your adversaries offering you gifts
In fact, the phrase “beware Greeks bearing gifts” comes from this story. See if you can spot it. The words are slightly different in order but the sentiment is still there.
Along with that phrase is another form this story. While less known to myself than the former, it is still familiar to me: “the face that launched a thousand ships…”. To mean a beauty so rare that it would cause men to go off to war.
This brings this particular saga to a close. I hope you have enjoyed the journey.
