Example text

And Hermes escorted me, and grey-eyed Athena. In Hesiod’s Theogony as many as five of the labours appear. e. the edge of the earth, and he is killed alongside his cowherd Eurytion and the dog Orthos before Herakles drives his oxen back to Tiryns. 306–32). There is no mention of Herakles in relation to the fifty-headed, raw-flesh-eating Kerberos who guards Hades, but the hydra and the lion, both raised by Hera, are explicitly overcome by ‘mighty Herakles’, the former with the help of his nephew Iolaos and Athena.

According to her (1912, 364–81), Herakles is a ‘year-daimon’, a spirit of the natural cycle of decay, death and renewal; his twelve labours reflect the solar year, and he can borrow the cup of the Sun because he is Helios’ humanized double; his club was originally the magical bough which brings fertility; the horn of Acheloos, broken off by Herakles, becomes the cornucopia, symbol of plenty and regeneration. Harrison’s concept of the year-daimon has generally been discarded, but her broader contention that myths were originally the spoken accompaniments to ritual, or at least expressed parallel concerns, forms the basis for a debate which continues to this day on the relationship between myth and ritual.

5 There are, then, plenty of precedents for grouping together a number of Herakles’ exploits. The significance of the Olympia metopes is that they distinguish the particular twelve, but it is debatable at what point these became canonical. Only nine labours appear, for example, on the temple of Hephaistos in the Athenian Agora (p. 169), built a decade or so after Zeus’ temple at Olympia. 6) comments that ‘the birds at Stymphalos and how Herakles cleaned the territory of Elis’ are missing from the labours depicted on the fourth-century temple of Herakles at Thebes, their place apparently taken by the wrestling match with Antaios; the rather unheroic nature of the birds and the stables episodes might account for their omission.
