I love this myth about the loyal, strong, mytical and beautiful horses:
Taken from Wikipedia: In Greek mythology, Xanthus and Balius were two immortal horses. Poseidon gave them to King Peleus of Phtia, as a wedding gift, when Peleus married the Ocean goddess Thetis. Peleus later gave the horses to his son Achilles who took them to draw his chariot during the Trojan War.
On the powerful image above, you see Automedon, Achilles' charioteer, controlling the horses.
Greek myths are simply wonderful and so rich, can't never get enough of them.
