STORY

Paris did not kidnap Elena, but a ghost in the likeness of Elena.
The real Helen is in Egypt, where King Theoclimenus intends to marry her by force. To escape him, Elena takes refuge in a sacred place. Here he meets the castaway Menelaus, returning from Troy with a few soldiers. Recognizing each other, the two study an escape plan.

Pretending to have learned from a traveler (Menelaus himself) that her husband is dead, Elena obtains a ship from the king to perform a funeral rite at sea. Embarking with Elena, Menelao and his friends (who had come up with a pretext) eliminate the crew and flee. The king, deceived, would like to kill his sister, the fortune-teller Teonoe, who with her silence favored the escape of the Greeks. But the Dioscuri restrain him, convincing him to accept the will of the gods.
