    The king himself the vases ranged with care; Then bade his followers to the feast prepare. A victim ox beneath the sacred hand Of great Alcinous falls, and stains the sand. To Jove the Eternal (power above all powers! Who wings the winds, and darkens heaven with showers)

    As the tired ploughman, spent with stubborn toil, Whose oxen long have torn the furrow'd soil, Sees with delight the sun's declining ray, When home with feeble knees he bends his way To late repast (the day's hard labour done); So to Ulysses welcome set the sun;

    Then instant to Alcinous and the rest (The Scherian states) he turn’d, and thus address'd: "O thou, the first in merit and command! And you the peers and princes of the land! May every joy be yours! nor this the least, When due libation shall have crown'd the feast,

    An epic simile is a detailed comparison in the form of a simile that is many lines in length.

    My guess is that it would be the third one. An epic simile often uses words such as like or as, and that one starts excerpt starts with As. It also makes sense as a simile. It is referring to a ploughman and to Ulysses. That would be my best guess. I am not 100% positive, but that is what I would put.
