1. One of the elders of Troy. (Hom. Il. 3.146.) A soothsayer had predicted, that on a certain day a boy should be born, by whom Troy should be destroyed. On that day Paris was born to Priam, and Munippus to Thymoetes. Priam ordered Munippus and his mother Cylla to be killed. Hence Aeneas, in Virgil (Aen. 2.31), says, that it was doubtful whether Thymnoetes, in order to revenge himself, advised to draw the wooden horse into the city.
