Detail from Agapenor, a "blue flue" Detail from Agapenor, a "blue flue"

Agapenor was the son of Anchaeus king of the Arcadians.

He lead 60 ships to the siege of Troy where he was one of the volunteers who manned the wooden horse of Troy.

On his journey back he was shipwrecked but founded Paphos on the Isle of Cyprus.

This Agapenor was a general cargo liner, a type of ship that could work almost anywhere using her own derricks, be it with surf boats or way up a muddy river in darkest Africa.

This Agapenor was a Blue Flue Line ship, or more correct but equally strange to the modern ear, the China Mutual Steam Navigation Company.
