Who was Machaon?
Machaon (pronounced may-chay-on) is a character from Homer's Iliad (800 B.C.) and a key figure in the Trojan War. Described as a warrior, surgeon and healer, Machaon was revered for saving the lives of Menelaus, King of Sparta, husband of beautiful Helen, and that of Philoctetes the famed Achaean leader. Under the direction of King Agamemnon, Machaon saved these and many other warriors during the fierce Greek and Trojan War. Machaon is remembered among the suitors of Helen and among those who hid inside the Wooden Horse. Thus is the story of Machaon.
