TROJAN WAR PHOTOGRAPHY: Priam in front of the Megaron




Here we see King Priam, father of Hector the Trojan champion (and, according to Homer, seemingly the husband of every Trojan woman, and the father of most of the children of the city), on the front steps of the megaron, with two attendants. Priam by Redoubt Enterprises, attendants by Wargames Foundry. A "megaron" was a building which most large settlements in the region had at this time, which was large and high-status, involving a huge porch, and a main room with a central hearth. It is thought that this would be the place where the grand story-telling would take place, and where important guests would meet the local rulers. The building is a heavily-modified resin casting by Monolith Designs.
