“Then a pair of lions charged a bull: In two huge bounds assaulted,
Then dragged him off as he bellowed in fear, as the dogs and men pursued.
The herdsmen commanded their hunting dogs as the lions tore into the bull,
But they were no match for lion’s teeth, and they raced back and forth, merely barking.”
[Homer’s Iliad, Book 18, Lines 579-587, Vail’s translation]
