A scene from the end of the Trojan War. The Greeks, to infiltrate the city, had taken the advice of Odysseus and tricked the Trojans into believing the Greek forces had left Troy. Leaving behind the offering of a massive horse the Greeks hoped the Trojans would take the horse into their city, which they did. Hiding inside, though, was a contingent of Greek warriors who opened the gates of Troy and allowed the returning army to finally sack the city. (From a painting by Henri Motte).
