Stymphalian Birds ● The Stymphalian bird was a carnivorous man eating bird with bronze beak, and sharp shiny metallic feathers ● King Eurystheus sent Hercules to slay the Stymphalian Birds ● Athena gave Hercules a gift, the way it make noise scare Stymphalian Birds and keep them away ● Heracles then shot many of them with arrows tipped with poisonous blood from the slain Hydra
  3. 3. Nemean Lion ● The first of Heracles' twelve labours, set by King Eurystheus (his cousin) was to slay the Nemean lion. ● While searching for the lion, Heracles fetched some arrows to use against it, not knowing that its golden fur was impenetrable; when he found the lion and shot at it with his bow, he discovered the fur's protective property when the arrow bounced harmlessly off the creature's thigh.
  4. 4. ● Heracles stunned the beast with his club and, using his immense strength, strangled it to death. During the fight the lion bit off one of his fingers. Others say that he shot arrows at it, eventually shooting it in the unarmoured mouth. ● After slaying the lion, he tried to skin it with a knife from his belt, but failed. He then tried sharpening the knife with a stone and even tried with the stone itself. Finally, Athena, noticing the hero's plight, told Heracles to use one of the lion's own claws to skin the pelt. ● When he returned on the thirtieth day carrying the carcass of the lion on his shoulders, King Eurystheus was amazed and terrified. .
