Helen Of Troy: A Traitor Or A Victim?

In Greek mythology, Helen of Troy was known as the face that launched a thousand ships — and the one to blame for the Trojan War. On Thursday, lawyers and judges will take on her case to debate whether she was a traitor or a victim for the National Hellenic Museum’s 7th annual trial series.

Reset speaks to trial participants and the museum to hear more about the case, and its ancient roots and modern consequences.

GUESTS: Chris Panagopoulos, director of finance and operations at the National Hellenic Museum

Robert Clifford, founder of Clifford Law Offices

Tinos Diamantatos, attorney at Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP
