Cassandra, Priam's lovely daughter
You are CASSANDRA, beautiful as golden Aphrodite. You see the chariot and cart and give a scream which brings all the Trojans rushing out of the gates in their grief, led by Hecabe and Andromache. Priam has to shout at his people to give him room, and the tragic procession returns Hector's body to the palace, where - still miraculously preserved - it lies in state.
