Agamemnon ACEO

ACEO, 2.5 x 3.5 inches, watercolour and gouache, 2008.

In mythology Agamemnon is the brother of Melenaus, husband of Helen of Troy, and joins his brother in the war against Troy, and is a major figure in the war, though not always in a positive way, offending both the goddess Artemis and the hero Achilles along the way. He takes King Priam's daughter Cassandra as his prize when the war is won. While away fat the war his wife Clymenestra takes a lover, Aegisthos. When Agamemnon returns they murder both him and Cassandra.
