Oh, I had that! It fell to bits in the end. The Luck of Troy was a statue of
Athene, and the Greeks had to steal it for the city to fall. I loved the
creepy scene where Helen is walking round the Horse calling out in the
voices of the Greek leaders' wives. (I must admit I like Terry Pratchett's
take on it with the Tsortean War in Eric, as well, with Helen having had
several children during the seige and got middle-aged.)
