Aphrodite fetches Helen for Paris. The beautiful Helen watched the duel from the high wall of the a Trojan city. She longed for an end to the war she caused. The result of the duel seemed a pity. Aphrodite came disguised to bring her to the room where Paris waited for love. Aphrodite should be that love for now, but the goddess spoke and Helen did move.
