... there stood in division of conflict ...

The Rage of Achilles, by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo
(Athena prevents Achilles from killing Agamemnon)


What god was it then set them together in bitter collision?
Zeus’ son and Leto’s, Apollo, who in anger at the king drove 
the foul pestilence along the host, and the people perished...

            -- The Illiad Book I: 8-10
