"links this dream to an earlier one in which the virginal Pallas was referred to"

   Commonly used as a synonym for the wise and beautiful Greek goddess Athena, 'Pallas' can also refer to the equally virginal daughter of sea-god Triton who, in one version of the myth, raised both girls as sisters until Athena felled Pallas in mortal combat.  According to some sources Athena then commemorated her death and likeness in the Palladium, a sacred statuette which became the lucky charm of the decidedly unlucky city of Troy (See note to page 104).
