Troy, Romance of: Dictys Cretensis and Dares Phrygius
Two fictitious authors of Greek pseudepigrapha (‘eyewitness accounts’ of the Trojan War).
Latin versions of the fictitious Greek eyewitness accounts; the dating of the translations, and the identity of the translators are not known or controversial; in the case of Dares, the existence of a Greek orig. is not confirmed.
