The Iliad

Podalirius and his brother Machaon led an army from Thessaly in the Trojan War both fighting on the side of the Greeks. Makhaon and Podalirius were both valued medics and surgeons having inherited their father's talent for medicine. Makhaon (or his brother) healed Philoctetes, Telephus and Menelaus. Unlike his brother Podalirius, survived the war and was even one of the heroes who entered the Trojan Horse.
