The Trojan Horse Sinon

Advertisement - Guide continues below


Besides Odysseus, Sinon is probably the most important guy in the whole Trojan Horse plot. After all the other Greeks have either sailed away or hidden inside the horse, Sinon stays out to help convince the Trojans to drag the horse into the city.

You decide.
