  • In Greek antiquity, a festival in honor of Ajax. Three of them were commonly celebrated, one at Opus in Locris in honor of Ajax, son of Oïleus; one at Salamis in honor of Ajax, son of Telamon; and one at Athens in honor of Ajax, son of Telamon. In these festivals a bed was prepared on which was placed an effigy of the hero, as in the Lectisternium at Rome.
