Ross

I believe the answer is:

ajax

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'classic hero' is the definition.
'ajax' can be an answer for 'hero' (I've seen this before). I'm not certain of the 'classic' bit.

I cannot understand how the remainder of the clue works.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for ajax that I've seen before include "Greek hero of the Trojan War - Dutch soccer team", "eleven from the Netherlands", "Son of Telamon, hero of Trojan War", "Strong Gr. hero (Iliad)", "Cleaner".)
