The Trojan horse was used by the Greeks to enter the city of Troy to put an end to a ten-year war. They did it by constructing a huge wooden horse that housed a contingent of soldiers. “The Greeks pretended to sail away, and the Trojans pulled the horse into their city as a victory trophy. That night the Greek force crept out of the horse and opened the gates for the rest of the Greek army, which had sailed back under cover of night. The Greeks entered and destroyed the city of Troy, decisively ending the war.”
Thus the phrase, “beware of Greeks bearing gifts.”
It’s somewhat understandable that the Trojans might have been fooled by the tactic. They certainly never would have let the Greeks in when for ten years they continually called and worked for the destruction of the Trojans.
