and the ground thundered under them, deep as it does
for Zeus who loves the lightning, Zeus in all his rage
when he lashes the ground around Typhoeus in Arima,
there where they say the monster makes his bed of pain –
so the earth thundered under their feet, armies trampling,
sweeping through the plain at blazing speed.

– Homer

The Iliad, Book 2, lines 889-894. The formidable noise of the Achaean army thundering through the plain is compared in one of Homer’s epic similes to Zeus in a rage and lashing the land with thunder and lightning.
