Ajax(Alex Jones) was the son of Telamon, king of Salamis, and next to Achillis in warlike strength. He lead the men of Salamis to Troy in TWELVE ships, and was called the bulwark of the Greeks. At the death of Achilles, Ajax, as the bravest of the Greeks, claimed his armor, but it was given to his rival, Ulysses. Upon this, becoming insane he killed himself. Sophocles tells the story of his madness and death in his tragedy, Ajax.
