|I was going to start, to tell you a story,
of great love and death and glory.
Four thousand years ago – at Troy,
Gods start a war of men, for joy!
Ten years of fight, with spear or knife,
for honor and beauty, a goddess, a wife.
The sister of ARES has started the war
by throwing an apple of gold, at the floor
Athena and Hera had lost in that game,
and god Aphrodite had offered Helene!
A piece of the story as Homer was singing
is a sad day of fighting, and merciless killing
and the love of THE Warrior for a beutiful WOMAN
at the day he had found, that he was only, a MAN…
|PENTHESILEA was an Amazonian queen, the daughter of Ares and Otrera. She had killed Hippolyta while hunting and this accident caused Penthesilea so much grief that she wished only to die, but, as a warrior and an Amazon, she had to do so honorably and in battle. She therefore joins the Trojan War, fighting on the side of TROJA defenders. Penthesilea arrives in Troy the night before the fighting is due to recommence for the first time after Hector's death. She arrived with twelve companions and promised the Trojans that she would kill ACHILLES. .
ACHILLES eventually kills her, needing only one blow to her breastplate to knock her over and leave her begging for her life. He is unmoved by her pleas, however, and kills her. He mocks her corpse until he removes her helmet. At this point, is so moved by PENTHESILEA’s beauty that he feels intense pity and sadness because he wishes that he could have married her. In the Pseudo- Apollodorus Epitome of the Bibliotheke is said, that, she have been killed by Achilles, "who fell in love with the Amazon after her death and slew Thersites for jeering at him, driven by anger".
That sets ACHILLES in a need of purification (Catharsis) and he travels to island of Lesvos to beg the Gods for forgiveness.
To find what ACHILLES left in the Island you have to calculate these 4 coordinates by finding values for these Greek and Trojan names;
E= ( Prymno + Phereclos ).Penthesilea
