as two lions seizing a goat
from under the guard of circling rip-tooth hounds,
lugging the carcass on through dense matted brush,
hoist it up from the earth in their big grinding jaws.
So the ramping, crested Aeantes hoisted Imbrius high,
stripping his gear in mid-air.

– Homer

The Iliad, Book 13, lines 236-241. Great Ajax and Little Ajax are likened in an extended simile to two lions seizing a goat, when they haul off the corpse of Trojan spearman Imbrius and strip off his armor.
