According to Roman legend, Laocoön was the Trojan priest who warned his countrymen against accepting the Trojan Horse from the Greeks. Unheeded, Laocoön threw his spear at the Horse in anger. Minerva, the Goddess of warriors, who was supporting the Greeks, at once sent sea-serpents to strangle Laocoön and his two sons in retribution. His death is symbolic of the fall of the city as a whole. The legend is also the subject of Michangelo’s famous sculpture of the same name.
