We know The Trojan horse from Homer major literary works the Iliad and the Odyssey. After ten years’ siege of Troy, Odysseus got an idea. On his initiative, the Greeks built a large horse figurine of wood, in whose cavity Greek soldiers hid. The Trojans received the figure as a gift and led it through the gate, during the night the soldiers sneaked out of the horse and opened the city gates to the Greek army that ravaged and conquered Troy. The idea was so good that the Trojan horse is not only a great story but also a concept. The Trojan horse is today synonymous with things that are covert, things that are not what they seem. Things that are much more than they seem at first glance.
