Paris Sightings

  • The Iliad by Homer 801BC - 601BC

    Homeboy paints Paris as kind of a selfish, egotistical coward in this definitive account of the Trojan War.

  • The Metamorphoses by Ovid 101 - 200

    Paris returns home to Troy with a hot new wife and a massive army of angry Greeks in this classic series of poems. (We're guessing Ma and Pa weren't so happy to see him.)

  • The Fall of Troy by Quintus Smyrnaeus 401BC - 302BC

    In this ancient poem, Paris takes out Achilles with an arrow, but later gets killed by an arrow himself. Oh, the irony.
