I am falling in a heap, hold me up higher Antaeus and Atlas.
Antaeus could not endure to have it said that any mortal was half so mighty as himself.
Several other wonderful feats are mentioned under other headings, as Antaeus, Cacus, etc.
He is like Antaeus; he gets new vigour whenever he touches the ground.'
His worldly mood was still upon him, his Antaeus heel still upon the earth.
He seemed earth-born, an Antaeus, and to suck in fresh vigour from the soil which he neighboured.
Antaeus had left his mother, the Earth, and was losing his strength in the air.
The struggle between Antaeus and Heracles is a favourite subject in ancient sculpture.
On all their holidays, the Pygmies had excellent sport with Antaeus.
As in the classical legend of Antaeus, they believe that they derive strength from the touch of Mother Earth.
