Idaios (Herald of the Trojans)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Idaios ( Greek  Ἰδαῖος ) was in Greek mythology the herald and charioteer of King Priam in the Trojan War .

He passed on to the Greeks the offer of Paris and with it the Trojans , not Helena (mythology) , but instead the treasures that Paris brought from Argos and even more to give away to end the war or at least obtain a ceasefire for the burial of the dead .

Perhaps he is identical to Idaios , the son of the Trojan Hephaestus priest Dares .
