I deserve Achilles armor, I defended the ships when Achilles was in his tent and you were all hurt.
We cannot choose between such hero so we will have the Trojan captives to pick who they fear the most out of the two.
While our men fear Ajax in battle the whole city dreads Odysseus like death, he is the evil genius of troy.

Ajax wale walked past the sleeping herdsmen and began attacking helpless sheep before he attacked to large ram mistaking them for Odysseus and Agamemnon taking them back to his tent and abusing them
Ajax spent all night abusing the poor rams until the sun rose and his insanity left him and he realized his mistake. embarrassed by his actions Ajax killed himself so he wouldn't endure the mockery by the other men
