Also, Cassandra, the daughter of Priam, prophesied evil; but no man heeded her, for it was her fate to be able to foresee the future, and yet to have no one believe her prophecy.
So the men of Troy drew the horse into the city. That night they made a feast to all the gods with much joy, not knowing that the last day of the great city had come.

for it was calm, and the moon gave them light. At the same time Sinon opened a secret door that was in the great horse, and the chiefs issued forth and opened the gates of the city, slaying those that kept watch.
