238 – Oh friend, oh Menelaus, student of Zeus! I no longer expect us to get out of this battle alive. I am not so afraid of Patroclus‘s corpse, that he will soon satisfy the dogs and birds of prey in Troy, as much as for your head and mine. For the cloudy one of the war, Hector, everything covers you, and a cruel death awaits us. Ea, call the bravest give us, in case anyone hears you.
The Iliad, Homer
