Antilochus was the first to kill a man— a well-armed Trojan warrior, Echepolus, son of Thalysius, a courageous man, who fought in the front ranks. He hit his helmet crest, topped with horsehair plumes, spearing his forehead. The bronze point smashed straight through the frontal bone. Darkness hid his eyes and he collapsed, like a tower, falling down into that frenzied battle.
Iliad, 4.457-461 translated by Ian Johnson
