The war of the Aloadai and the gods in Ovid

Nor were the heights of heaven more secure: Gigantes, it’s said, to win the gods’ domain, mountain on mountain reared and reached the stars. Then the Pater Omnipotens [Zeus] hurled his bolt and shattered great Olympus and struck down high Pelion piled on Ossa. There they lay, grim broken bodies crushed in huge collapse. (Ovid, Metamorphoses 1.151)
