In Greek mythology , Dolon (In Ancient Greek: Δόλων) was the son of Eumedes. He fought for Troy during the Trojan War and was caught spying by Odysseus and Diomedes. He was put to death by the Greek camp.

Capture of Dolon by Odysseus and Diomedes, Krater London, British Museum F 157 , c. 5/4th century

They all sat there in silence,
saying nothing.  Now, among the Trojans
was a man called Dolon, son of Eumedes,
a sacred herald, a man rich in gold and bronze.
Dolon wasn't much to look at, but he ran fast.
He was the only male child, with five sisters.
