Homeros the poet, above in the center,
In the middle Menelaos whose wife Helen was robbed by Paris fighting it out (Iliad, book III), with Agemmenon chief of the Achaeans and Priamos king of Troy looking on extreme left and right.
The intervention of goddess Venus in this fight is unbelievably cunting, yet needs to be read to be propelled deeply into this love and war (his/her/gods)story.
