Ajax the Lesser is drowned by Poseidon after bragging that he escaped death by sea during a shipwreck.  Ajax the Greater killed himself after killing sheep out of madness (he was ashamed by his behavior).  Odysseus meets both of these men as shades (ghosts) in the Underworld in the Odyssey. Check the link below for more information.
