 The Last Days of Troy, Greek Mythology Link.
Dictys says that Deiphobus 1 approached Achilles as if to confirm the agreements concerning Priam 1's daughter Polyxena 1, whom Achilles had fallen in love with, and embracing him in false friendship refused to let go, so that Paris, rushing forward with sword drawn, could deal him two deadly blows in his sides.

Menelaus' forces arrived to the house where Deiphobus 1 and Helen lived, and when they had her new husband arrested, Menelaus cut him to pieces under torture, lopping off ears and nose, and all of his limbs one by one.
