English term or phrase:Patroclus
When Schliemann read Homer’s description of the Gorgon shield of Agamemnon and was told that the buckler strap had been decorated with a figure of a three-headed snake, he accepted all this gospel truth. The chariots, weapons and household articles portrayed in detail by Homer were for him part and parcel of ancient Greece. Were all these heroes – Achilles and Patroclus, Hector and Aeneas – and this pageant of friendship, hate, love, and high adventure, nothing but mere invention? Shliemann did not think so; to his mind people and such scenes had actually existed. He was conscious that all Greek antiquity, including the great historians Herodotus and Thukidides, had accepted the Trojan War as an actual event, and his famous names as historical personages.
