Ἡρακλῆς

Heracles was a divine hero in Greek mythology, the son of Zeus and Alcmene, foster son of Amphitryon and great-grandson and half-brotherof Perseus. He was the greatest of the Greek heroes, a paragon of masculinity, the ancestor of royal clans who claimed to be Heracleidae, and a champion of the Olympian order against chthonic monsters. Heracles was commanded by the Delphic Oracle to perform twelve labors for King Eurystheus of Mycenae.
