!! ''The Cypria''
* FanonDiscontinuity: A particularly harsh example; the books aside from TheIliad and Literature/TheOdyssey were so disliked that they don't even exist anymore.
* HilariousInHindsight: Zeus basically sets off the whole Trojan War in order to trim down the world's population. He's clearly gotten lazy over the last three thousand-odd years, seeing as the human population has grown much, much, much, ''much'' larger than it was either before or after the conflict.
* [[{{Sequelitis}} Prequelitis]]: Creator/{{Aristotle}} criticised the work as lacking focus, as it was more of a series of events than a unified story. ''The Iliad'' and ''The Odyssey'' are considered superior works.
