    Description

    Heracles, the son of Zeus and Alcmene (a mortal woman), was a Greek hero and demigod. Because he was the product of one of Zeus’ many affairs, Heracles was hated and hounded by Zeus’ jealous wife, Hera. Hera ensured that Heracles’ life was filled with hardship and tragedy.

    Of all Heracles’ heroic deeds, the most important were the Twelve Labors, which the hero was forced to perform for his cousin Eurystheus, the High King of Mycenae. Through these labors and his many other exploits, Heracles became known as a champion of civilization and a slayer of monsters.

    Heracles, like the other heroes of ancient Greece, had flaws. He was hot-tempered, violent, and lustful, and these characteristics contributed to his struggles as much as Hera’s hatred did. Despite his failings, Heracles was promoted to the ranks of the gods after his death.

    • Obverse: Heracles, from the waist up, wearing the head of a lion, and carrying a club in his left hand, with mountains in the foreground and background, and “HERACLES” at 6 o’clock.
