TROJAN WAR PHOTOGRAPHY: Ajax in his chariot

I was confused when I first read Homer's Iliad, by the fact that there was no character called Ajax. There were in fact two characters called Aeas, and both of these translate as Ajax in latin (the fact that there were two characters with the same name suggests to me that the men were real - a poet wouldn't invent that). Anyway, the larger and slightly more famous of the two is pictured here, in his chariot, wearing "Dendra" armour, which is based on a suit of bronze armour found in a place called Dendra in Southern Greece. I hope that you like the dusk lighting.
