Diomedes ACEO

ACEO, 2.5 x 3.5 inches, watercolour and gouache, 2008.
Diomedes is another of the heroes of the Trojan war. He was King of Argos, and one of the suitors of Helen. He is great friends with Odysseus and both are favoured by the goddess Athena. Later in the war they steal the Palladium (a statue of Athena) after they have been told that Troy will not fall until the statue has left it's walls. He was also one of the warriors hidden in the Trojan horse.
