τὸν δὲ μετ᾽ Ὠρίωνα πελώριον εἰσενόησα
θῆρας ὁμοῦ εἰλεῦντα κατ᾽ ἀσφοδελὸν λειμῶνα,
τοὺς αὐτὸς κατέπεφνεν ἐν οἰοπόλοισιν ὄρεσσι
χερσὶν ἔχων ῥόπαλον παγχάλκεον, αἰὲν ἀαγές. (Οδ. λ 572-575)

(and after him I saw Orion, huge,
dragging with him wild beasts over the field of asphodel,
that he had killed all by himself on the lonely hills,
and in his hands he held a club of pure bronze, ever unbroken (Odyssey, Book 11, 572-575)
