Dante’s INFERNO, Canto 32: Antenor


Artist: Jules Lefebvre




Traitor against Troy

Opened city gates to Greeks

Who sacked the city


NOTE: The traitors are punished eternally in Circle 9, the lowest circle in the INFERNO. It is divided into four rings. In the second ring, ANTENORA, which is named after Antenor, a Trojan who betrayed his city, the traitors against country or political party are frozen in ice up to their neck, like the traitors against family. The painting shows the death of King Priam of Troy.
