Homer, Iliad 16.316 (tr. A.T. Murray, rev. William F. Wyatt):
And darkness enfolded his eyes.

τὸν δὲ σκότος ὄσσε κάλυψε.
Id. 16.327:
These two ... went to Erebus.

βήτην εἰς Ἔρεβος.
Id. 16.333-334:
                 And down over his eyes
came dark death and resistless fate.

                                                     τὸν δὲ κατ᾿ ὄσσε
ἔλλαβε πορφύρεος θάνατος καὶ μοῖρα κραταιή.
Id. 16.344:
And down over his eyes a mist was shed.

κατὰ δ᾿ ὀφθαλμῶν κέχυτ᾿ ἀχλύς.
Id. 16.350:
And a black cloud of death enfolded him.

θανάτου δὲ μέλαν νέφος ἀμφεκάλυψεν.
Id. 16.414:
And death, that slays the spirit, was shed about him.

ἀμφὶ δέ μιν θάνατος χύτο θυμοραϊστής.
