Eumelos was a charioteer who had the swiftest horses in the Greek army. When the riders gathered for the funeral games for Patroclus {see planet  (617)}, Eumelos was the first to rise up. He competed against Diomedes, Menelaus, Antilochus and Meriones {see planets  (1437),  (1647),  (1583), and  (3596), respectively}. He was in the lead until the goddess Athena {see planet  (881)} smashed the yoke of his chariot, spinning him out. Though he came in last, Achilles {see planet  (588)} awarded Eumelos the bronze corselet stripped from Asteropaios {see planet  (4805)}, and he accepted it joyfully. (M 25444)
