Dares of Phrygialocked

  • Stephen J. Harrison


Dares of Phrygia, Trojan priest of *Hephaestus in the Iliad (5. 9) and supposed author of a pre-Homeric account of the Trojan War (Ael. VH 11. 2). The extant Daretis Phrygii de excidio Troiae historia (5th or 6th cent. ce) is represented in a fictional prefatory epistle from *Sallust to *Cornelius Nepos as a translation of this work by the former.
