● An epic hero is a larger than life figure from a history or legend,
usually favored by or even partially descended from deities, but
aligned more closely with mortal figures in popular portrayals.
The hero participates in a cyclical journey or quest, faces
adversaries that try to defeat him in his journey, gathers allies
along his journey, and returns home significantly transformed by
his journey. The epic hero illustrates traits, performs deeds, and
exemplifies certain morals that are valued by the society from
which the epic originates. They usually embody cultural and
religious beliefs of the people. Many epic heroes are recurring
characters in the legends of their native culture. Epic heroes are
superhuman in that they are smarter, stronger, and braver than
average humans. An epic hero can also be a warrior of some sort
who performs extraordinary tasks that most find difficult. This
hero is strong, smart, and brave.

. Anyone facing an array of
insurmountable obstacles can
identify with this one, although we
wouldn’t want the kind of divine
obstruction that Hercules faced.
Luckily for him, at least one deity
was on his side. The myth sources
are variable but the great hero
Hercules (Herakles in Greek) was
hated by Juno (Hera in Greek) partly
because he was not her son but

instead the offspring of her philandering husband Zeus (Roman Jove). In a rage of madness brought by
Hera (Juno), Herakles either killed his wife and/or children. His punishment was a set of twelve (although
sometimes limited to ten) daunting ordeals or labors mandated by Hera. Hera’s intent is indeed either to
destroy the hero or bring even more hubris upon him. Any of these ordeals would likely be impossible
tasks, especially without the help of Athena, patron goddess of heroes. Yet, the hero Hercules not only
accomplished the tasks but in doing so rids the world of more than a few monsters and tyrants or
accomplishes labors that would have destroyed anyone else.
In usual order, the Labors or Ordeals of Hercules were generally accepted as killing the Nemean Lion,
killing the Lernean Hydra, capturing and obtaining the golden horns of the Keryneian Hind, destroying the
Erymanthian Boar, ridding Greece of the Stymphalian Birds, cleaning the Augean Stables in a day,
capturing the Cretan Bull, stealing the Mares of Diomedes (and killing the tyrant himself), getting the
girdle of the Amazon Queen Hippolyta, stealing the cattle of monstrous Geryon, bringing Hera the Apples
of the Hesperides and capturing Kerberos the guardian dog of Hell. In Hesiod’s Theogony c. 310 ff, one of
the oldest Greek sources, Kerberos was said to be fifty-headed and have a voice like ringing bronze but
most depictions show him three-headed. The first tasks took place mostly in the Peloponnesus of
southern Greece, the next few broadened out to outer Greece, Thessaly and beyond, while the last ones
extended to the limits of the world. Although many of these ordeals required immense strength and
courage, the last two actually required more brains than brawn, and Athena’s help was especially vital in
these final labors. The Classical tradition finally distilled all of these Herculean labors together in one
source, the Bibliotheca Historica of Diodorus Siculus in mid-first century BCE.
monster in the Italian cliffs who had a girl’s upper body and dogs and snakes below, feared for plucking
men out of passing ships and devouring them. Charybdis was the giant whirlpool on the opposite Sicilian
coast that would catch and sink whole ships. In Odyssey XII.234-59, following the instructions of Circe,
Odysseus chose to lose six men to Scylla as a lesser risk rather than losing the whole ship and crew to
Charybdis. In Latin, the aphorism Incidit in scyllam cupiens vitare charybdim, “He runs on Scylla wishing to
avoid Charybdis” is often credited to Virgil but his Aeneid 3.320 ff about this event does not include this
line, nor do Ovid’s works. I’ve sailed this passage in a boat coming with a stiff wind from the west around
Sicily’s Cape Peloro – the Italian town of Scilla is even named directly across from the cape – turning south
and southwest toward Messina and seen firsthand the danger of the “Scyllan” rocks where the wind could
drive a boat as well as many swirls of water turbulence where two seas, Tyrrhenian and Ionian, mix in this
narrow strait, making oceanographic wind and current vectors the real monsters. [1]
