The Golden Apple story

Troy fell because they were too good, honest, compassionate. Greeks were too good at rhetoric, deception, trickery. Romans saw themselves as like the Trojans and the modern Greeks like the Greeks of Homer.

Trojans interpret Laocoon's death differently, to their demise. Turnus misinterprets the meaning of the ships turning into nymphs wrongly.
