Look – a genuine miracle right before my eyes!
Hector’s escaped again, he’s risen from the dead!
And just as each of us hoped with all his heart
he’d dropped and died at the hands of giant Ajax.
But again some god swoops down and saves this Hector –
and hasn’t he wiped out enough of us already?
Now he’ll make more slaughter, well I know.
He’d never be at the front, smashing our lines
unless Old Thunder, Zeus, had put him on his feet.

– Homer

The Iliad, Book 15, lines 339-347. The Greek Thoas is the first to comment when Hector, injured by a boulder, makes a remarkable recovery as if "risen from the dead" – he thought he was going to die. But Apollo filled Hector with new strength and he charges the Greeks with new vigor.
