Menelaiis, irritated at this injurious breach of
hospitality, romplained to his brother Agamem-
non, King of Mycenae, who engaged the Greeks
to avenge the affront. Embassadors were sent 9)
to Troy, to demand the restitution of Helena,
and, in case of a denial, to declare war. Paris
refused to restore her, upon which war was pro-
claimed. It lasted ten years.

They made a great wooden horse, and inclosed in
its body a number of armed men ; after which they
