In Greek mythology, Sinon was a Greek warrior during the Trojan War. He pretended to have deserted the Greeks and joined the Trojans and convinced them to bring the Trojan Horse into the city (against the advice of Cassandra and Laocoon). Inside the giant wooden horse were Greek soldiers, who pillaged the city at night.
