Rhesus

469 Rhesus Thraciae rex, Martis vel Strymonis filius, cum Trojanis veniret in auxilium, adduceretque secum equos, quorum erat fatum , ut si semel Xanthi aquam bibissent, Troja foret invicta : clausis jam portis, coactus est in litore tentoria ponere. Sed proditus a Dolone Trojano speculatore, qui in Diomedem et Ulyssem inciderat, a Diomede interfectus est, et equi fatales abducti: Iliad.X.
