3670. Sarpedon, general of Demetrius' forces was defeated by Tryphon's army to whom the inhabitants of Ptolemais were allied. He retired with his soldiers into the Mediterranean country. As the victorious forces of Tryphon were marching along the sea coast between Ptolemais and Tyre, they were suddenly hit by a giant wave from the sea which rose to an incredible height and rushed with a great force upon the land. Many drowned. Some were pulled out to sea by the retreating wave and others were left dead in hollow places. The retreating wave left a great number of fish with the dead bodies. When Sarpedon's soldiers heard of this disaster, they quickly returned there and were very pleased to see the destruction of the enemy. They gathered up very many of the fishes and sacrificed them to Neptune, the deliverer before the gates of Ptolemais where the battle was fought. (Strabo, l. 16. p. 758. & Athenaus, l. 8. c. 2. from the History of Possidonius, the Stoick.) {broken link}

Homeric Hymns - Fragment #19A :: So she (Europa) crossed the briny water from afarto Crete, beguiled by the wiles of Zeus. Secretly did the Fathersnatch her away and gave her a gift, the golden necklace, the toywhich Hephaestus the famed craftsman once made by his cunningskill and brought and gave it to his father for a possession. And Zeus received the gift, and gave it in turn to the daughter of proud Phoenix. But when the Father of men and of gods had mated so far off with trim-ankled Europa, then he departed back again from the rich-haired girl. So she bare sons to the almighty Son of Cronos, glorious leaders of wealthy men -- Minos the ruler, and just Rhadamanthys and noble Sarpedon the blameless and strong. To these did wise Zeus give each a share of his honour. Verily Sarpedon reigned mightily over wide Lycia and ruled very many cities filled with people, wielding the sceptre of Zeus: and great honour followed him, which his father gave him, the great-hearted shepherd of the people. For wise Zeus ordained that he should live for three generations of mortal men and not waste away with old age. He sent him to Troy; and Sarpedon gathered a great host, men chosen out of Lycia to be allies to the Trojans. These med did Sarpedon lead, skilled in bitter war. And Zeus, whose wisdom is everlasting, sent him forth from heaven a star, showing tokens for the return of his dear son.... ....for well he (Sarpedon) knew in his heart that the sign was indeed from Zeus. Very greatly did he excel in war together with man-slaying Hector and brake down the wall, bringing woes upon the Danaans. But so soon as Patroclus had inspired the Argives with hard courage....'

There exist two groups of Asteroids far away from main Asteroid belt and located in the orbital line of the planet Jupiter. As most of the Asteroids of these two groups are named after heroes of legendary TROJAN WAR, these groups are called TROJAN GROUPS of Asteroids. In these two groups, one is called ACHILLES Group (AG) and another is called PATROCLUS Group (PG). AG located in FRONT side of Jupiter at 60° and PG located at 60° behind Jupiter. Both groups are located at equal distance from Jupiter that is at distance of 778.35 Million Kilometer and distance between the Sun and these groups is also same i.e.,778.35. This is TRIANGULAR SYSTEM of the Sun, Jupiter and Asteroids Groups. These two groups AG and PG revolve around the Sun at Velocity of 13.1 Kilometer per Second, which is equal to Jupiter’s Velocity. {Decoding Mystery of Trojan Asteroids}

Blue Triangle Butterfly - Graphium sarpedon < FAMILY PAPILIONIDAE :: The Blue Triangle Butterflies have wings which are black to dark brown in colour with large blue area in the middle. Those blue patterns joint to make a triangle and this comes their common name. The underside pattern of the wings are similar except there are the red spots on the hind wings bottom.

note: Lagrange points L4 & L5 sometimes called triangular Lagrange points because they're the 3rd point of an equilateral triangle with Sun-Jupiter.

SARPEDON, in Greek legend, son of Zeus and Laodameia, Lycian prince and hero of the Trojan war. He fought on the side of the Trojans, and after greatly distinguishing himself by his bravery, was slain by Patroclus. A terrible stniggle took place for the possession of his body, until Apollo rescued it from the Greeks, and by the command of Zeus washed and cleansed it, anointed it with ambrosia, and handed it over to Sleep and Death, by whom it was conveyed for burial to Lycia, where a sanctuary (Sarpedoneum) was erected in honor of the fallen hero. Virgil (A en. i. 100) knows nothing of the removal of the body to Lycia. In later tradition, Sarpedon was the son of Zeus and Europa and the brother of Minos. Having been expelled from Crete by the latter, he and his comrades sailed for Asia, where he finally became king of Lycia. Euripides (Rhesus, 29) confuses the two Sarpedons.
