Talk:Ajax the Lesser
|This article is of interest to the following WikiProjects:|
Does it really help to have the standard transliteration, then another that sounds different? I for one would vote to see the actual name in Greek.
Could we have more specific cites? For instance, is the segment about both Aiantes being enemies of Odysseus specifically mentioned in the named passage in the odyssey?
In the Aeneid, (Book I, lines 41-45), Juno gives Minvera credit for killing Aias. Is this just Juno's imagination run wild, as she is not a stable character?
- It certainly deserves mention in the article. I'll check it out in my Aeneid when I get home from work later on tonight. Fernando Rizo T/C 04:11, 7 September 2005 (UTC)
Why did Poseidon kill Ajax?
In the "Mythology" section, it says Poseidon killed Ajax for his arrogant presumptuousness, but in the "Death" section, it suggests that Athena told Poseidon to do it. So was he angry at Ajax or was he just doing what Athena told him to do? I would very much favour the first explanation, since it's unlike Poseidon to get bossed around by Athena.
