Son of Oïleus (3 syl.), King of Locris, in Greece. The night Troy was taken, he offered violence to Cassandra, the prophetic daughter of Priam; in consequence of which his ship was driven on a rock, and he perished at sea. —Homer's Iliad, and later poets.
Ipsa (Juno), Jovis rapidum jaculata e nubibus ignem, Disjecitque rates, evertitque æquora ventis; Illum (Ajax) expirantem transfixo pectore flammas Turbine corripuit, scopuloque infixit acuto.
“Virgil: Æneid, i. 42, etc.”
