Aeneas fleeing from Troy. From the Wikipedia: Aeneas (Greek: Αἰνείας, Aineías, derived from Greek Αἰνή meaning "to praise"), in Greco-Roman mythology, was a Trojan hero, the son of the prince Anchises and the goddess Aphrodite. His father was the second cousin of King Priam of Troy. The journey of Aeneas from Troy (with help from Aphrodite), which led to the founding of the city Rome, is recounted in Virgil's Aeneid.
