Named for Hektor’s {see planet  (624)} most trusted advisor and strategist, Poulydamas, who was born on the same night as Hektor. The gods gave Hektor skill with arms and gave Poulydamas better judgment. He sensibly advised Hektor to lock the gates of Troy against Achilles {see planet  (588)}, but Hektor disregarded his friend’s advice and went out of the city to his doom and to the eventual doom of Troy. (M 18141)
