In the Iliad, Ajax is notable for his abundant strength and courage, and was chosen by lot to meet Hector in a duel which lasts most of a whole day. The encounter ended in a draw, with Ajax presenting Hector with a purple sash and Hector giving Ajax his silver sword.

The second fight between the two heros occurs when the Trojans break into the Mycenean camp, and the fight takes place amongst the Greek ships.

Ajax is responsible for the death of many Trojan lords, including Phorcys. According to Hyginus, in total, Ajax killed 28 people at Troy.
