Diomedes killed Eknemmon and Khromios, took their armor, and sent their chariot horses to the beach.

Aineias searched out Pandaros in the Trojan ranks and suggested an alliance to bring down Diomedes.  Aineias had a famous chariot team descended from horses owned by Zeus and he offered to drive Pandaros into the conflict.

As Aineias and Pandaros approached Diomedes and Sthenelos, Diomedes made a plan to take the great team.
