According to Henry George Liddell, Robert Scott, A Greek-English Lexicon, Antenor is derived from "ant-" (instead of) and "aner" (man)-- meaning "instead of a man".
The origins may be related to battle:In *Agamemnon*, Aeschylus uses antenor in the following context: soldiers return from battle as ashes, instead of men (http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/cgi-bin/ptext?doc=Perseus:text:1999.01.0224:line=437)
