r>A Son of Hercules, Telephos stoutlyopposed the invasion of his country of Mysia, where the Greeks had landed bymistake, on their way to Troy. In the fighting, Telephos received a wound from thespear of Achilles, a wound that would not heal, and consulting an oracle was told that the injury could only be cured by he that had caused it. Consequently, Telephos proceeded to Aulis, where the Greek fleet lay at anchor, and presenting himself indisguise to Agamemnon, abducted his son, Orestes, and demanded to be healed.Odysseus, however, stepped in and scraped some of the rust from the spear of Achillesto the wound, which then healed. In gratitude, Telephos offered to lead the Greeks toTroy.
