--------------------

In Dardania, Assaracus was succeeded on the throne by his son Capys 1, who towards the end of the Trojan War is said to have recommended throwing the WOODEN HORSE into the sea. Capys 1 is father of Anchises 1 , who is father of Aeneas , leader of the Dardanians during the Trojan War .Aeneas is remembered for his courage and piety, and as the one who was destined to survive and to save the House of Dardanus 1 from extinction. For Aeneas , escaping from the flames of the sacked Troy, emigrated to Italy where he founded a kingdom which in time gave birth to Rome. -------------------- бащата на Анхис и дядо на Еней (според Аполодор Ill 12, 2). Един от дарданските герои. Капис се счита за епоним и основател на град Капуа в Кампаня (или град Капий в Аркадия -Страбон XIII 1, 58). Според друг мит обаче Капуа била наречена в чест на втория Капис, потомък на Еней, получил името в памет на първия Капис (Вергилий, Енеида, I, 183, II, 35).
