Paris (Ancient Greek: Πάρις), forby kent as Alexander (Ἀλέξανδρος, Aléxandros),[1] the son o Keeng Priam an Queen Hecuba o Troy, appears in a nummer o Greek legends. Probably the best-kent was his elopement wi Helen, queen o Sparta, this bein ane o the immediate causes o the Trojan War. Later in the war, he fatally woonds Achilles in the heel wi an arrae as foretold bi Achilles’s mither Thetis. The name Paris is probably Luwian an comparable tae Pari-zitis attestit as a Hittite scribe's name.[2]
