This name derives from the Ancient Greek “anténòr (Ἀντήνωρ)” meaning “an elder”. In Greek mythology, Antenor was a son of the Dardanian noble Aesyetes by Cleomestra, or, alternately, of Hicetaon. He is a counselor to Priam during the Trojan War. Antenor appears briefly in Homer's Iliad. In Book 3, he is present when Helen identifies for Priam each of the Greek warriors from the wall of Troy; when she describes Odysseus, Antenor criticizes her, saying how he entertained Odysseus and Menelaus and got to know both. In Book 7, as mentioned above, he advises the Trojans to give back Helen, but Paris refuses to yield.
