One of the oldest known riddles is from the ancient Greek poet Homer’s “The Odyssey.” It is said to have been written around the 8th century BC and goes as follows:

“As I walked by the way To the fair fields of Troy, A thing there met my eyes Which many a man would joy To have seen, but none did see it Save only I, and I returned To tell it to the rest of the world.”

The riddle is referring to the Trojan Horse, which was used by the Greeks to infiltrate the city of Troy and win the Trojan War.
