    • 1821, Johann Heinrich Voss, Ilias[1], lines 1:402-406:
      Rufend zum hohen Olympos den hundertarmigen Riesen,
      Den Briareos nennen die Himmlischen, aber Ägäon
      Jeglicher Mensch; denn er raget auch selbst vor dem Vater an Stärke.
      Dieser nun saß bei Kronion dem Donnerer, freudiges Trotzes.
      Drob erschraken die Götter, und scheuten sich, jenen zu fesseln.
