That night, while the weary Trojans slept, Sinon released the Greek warriors hidden inside the horse  and opened Troy's gates to the remaining Greek forces, which had sailed back to Troy's shores from  Tenedos. The Trojans were helpless against the assault, and Troy was soon in flames. Hector, King  Priam's son, who had been slain by Achilles earlier in the Trojan War, appeared to Aeneas in a  dream and told him that all was lost, and that he should take Troy's gods of hearth and household —  the Penat ë s — and seek a new city for them.
