And so Brisets returned, like golden Aphrodite,
but when she saw Patroclus lying torn by the bronze
she flung herself on his body, gave a piercing cry
and with both hands clawing deep at her breasts,
her soft throat and lovely face, she sobbed,
a woman like a goddess in her grief.

– Homer

The Iliad, Book 19, lines 333-338. When Briseis sees Patroclus’s dead body she weeps. In a simile she is likened to the goddess of love and beauty Aphrodite and is described as having a lovely face and soft throat.
