Pompeii, a hall decorated with subjects inspired by the Trojan War emerges from the new excavations. Among the characters depicted are Helen and Paris, the Trojan prince who kidnapped Helen, wife of the Spartan king Menelaus, starting the Trojan War. The frescoes also depict the god Apollo and Paris’ sister, Cassandra, from whom he received the ability to predict the future, although his prophecies would never have been believed, not even by his own family.
