The night that Troy was taken, he violated the sanctity of Minerva's temple, and for this offence as he returned home, the goddess, who had obtained the power of the tempest from Neptune, destroyed his ship in a storm. Ajax swam to a rock and defied the gods. Such impiety offended Neptune, who with his trident struck the rock, which fell with Ajax into the sea.
