“When the warriors came to their ambush point, a stream where flocks were watered,
They hid together among bronze hills and stationed two lookouts at hand.
There the two hid, awaiting the sight of the sheep and the curving-horned cattle.”

[Homer’s Iliad, Book 18, Lines 520-524, Vail’s translation]
