Ne’optol’emos or Pyrrhos.
 
Son of Achilles; called Pyrrhos from his yellow hair, and Ne’optol’emos because he was a new solider, or one that came late to the siege of Troy. According to Virgil, it was this young man that slew the aged Priam. On his return home he was murdered by Orestes, at Delphi.   1
