Trojan War Greek allies
The Trojan War is considered to be one of the greatest expeditions in ancient history.
Reference to the magnitude of the war effort on part of the Greeks, is made in the second book of Homer's Iliad, which is the main historical source of information about the war.
According to the Iliad, the Greek forces consisted of 28 contingents from mainland Greece, the Peloponnese, the Dodecanese islands, Crete, and Ithaca, comprising about 1200 ships. These numbers would mean a total force of 70,000 to 130,000 men.
Below, there is a map of the regions of Greece which took part in the war and a table which provides more detail about each region, namely the names of the leaders and the total number of ships despatched.
