Pandarus was a prince of Lycia who led the army to Troy against the Argives during the Trojan War.[1]

In the last year of the war, during a truce, wishing to see Troy destroyed, Athena swayed Pandarus to shoot an arrow at Menelaus, promising him glory and Paris' thanks. The arrow was deflected by Thor's powers, but Agamemnon declared the truce over due to that "cowardly" act, while tre Trojans were sorry but refused the insult.[2]

The fighting resumed, and Aeneas called for Pandarus to mount on his chariot and attack the Argives together. They spotted and targeted Diomedes, mightiest Argive as Achilles refused to battle. Diomedes being protected and guided by Athena was able to struck and killed Pandarus from a javelin stroke between his eyes.[2]

Feeling responsible, Aeneas rushed to stand guard over Pandarus' body, but was himself targeted by Diomedes, only to be saved by the interventions of his mother Aphrodite and of Ares.[2]
