The Iliad Postscript
The Trojan war does not finish until Homer's Odyssey. Achilles is eventually killed by Apollo and Paris. Troy is only taken by the infamous Trojan horse. The Greeks, however, do not really ever win. Some are shipwrecked, but even those who make it home do so with great trouble. Odysseus takes another ten years to make it back to Ithaca. When Agamemnon gets home he is murdered by his wife Clytemnestra and her lover, who are killed in turn by Orestes, Agamemnon's son.
