ild.04 Then the fight between Trojans and Achaeans grew furious over his body, and they flew upon each other like Wolves, man and man crushing one upon the other.
ild.11 And now as a band of reapers mow swathes of wheat or barley upon a rich man s land, and the sheaves fall thick before them, even so did the Trojans and Achaeans fall upon one another; they were in no mood for yielding but fought like Wolves, and neither side got the better of the other.
ild.13 Of a truth my eyes behold a great and terrible portent which I had never thought to see the Trojans at our ships they, who were heretofore like panic stricken hinds, the prey of jackals and Wolves in a forest, with no strength but in flight for they cannot defend themselves.
ild.13 Cowardly she Wolves that you are, you feared not the anger of dread Jove, avenger of violated hospitality, who will one day destroy your city; you stole my wedded wife and wickedly carried off much treasure when you were her guest, and now you would fling fire upon our ships, and kill our heroes.
ild.16 Even as fierce ravening Wolves that are feasting upon a homed stag which they have killed upon the mountains, and their jaws are red with blood they go in a pack to lap water from the clear spring with their long thin tongues; and they reek of blood and slaughter; they know not what fear is, for it is hunger drives them even so did the leaders and counsellors of the Myrmidons gather round the good squire of the fleet descendant of Aeacus, and among them stood Achilles himself cheering on both men and Horses.
ild.16 As ravening Wolves seize on kids or lambs, fastening on them when they are alone on the hillsides and have strayed from the main flock through the carelessness of the shepherd and when the Wolves see this they pounce upon them at once because they cannot defend themselves even so did the Danaans now fall on the Trojans, who fled with ill omened cries in their panic and had no more fight left in them.
ild.22 There can be no covenants between men and Lions, Wolves and lambs can never be of one mind, but hate each other out and out an through.

Arise Greece! from thy silent sleep, 2000 years long it is! Forget not, thy ancient culture, beautiful and marvelous it is!
