Calchas was a very popular seer of antiquity and famous for his interpretations of omens. Calchas knew the things of the past, present, and future equally well.
When the famous Greek hero of the Trojan War Achilles was only nine years old, Calchas declared that the city of Troy could not be taken without him. Six years later, Calchas would join the Trojan War and help the hero Agamemnon with his prophecies to conquer Troy.
Calchas lived in Megara (or Mycenae). He died of grief after the fall of Troy, when he went up against the seer Mopsus and was defeated by him.
