SINON THE LYING GREEK

***

Sinon, lying Greek

Responsible for Troy’s fall

Famous Trojan Horse

***

NOTE: Sinon is one of the liars punished in the Inferno. He lied to the Trojans, telling them that if the Trojan Horse were brought into Troy, then Troy would never fall. Some Trojans wanted to cast the Trojan Horse into the sea, but Sinon convinced the Trojans not to do that. That night, Greek soldiers came out of the hollow Trojan Horse, went to the gates of Troy, opened them, and let in other Greek soldiers.
