Pretextos não são causas IV

But the poet Euripides threw a curve into the story. According to him, the actual Helen had been carried off by the gods to Egypt, where she lived for the duration of the Trojan War, while only a phantom Helen accompanied Paris to Troy. After the war, it was Menelaus and the phantom Helen who set sail for Greece and got blown off course to Egypt, where eventually the phantom disappeared and he was reunited with his real wife. He was of course delighted to learn that his wife was no adultress, but shocked to realize that Greeks and Trojans had fought and died at Troy for something not worthe fighting and dying for--and that sure wasn't the last time something like that happened.
