Through tales of triumph, Hercules became a legend in Greek mythology following the completion of his Twelve Labors, set forth by King Eurystheus.
Hercules slayed lions, captured beasts, defeated a carnivorous bird and more on this conquest of penance. The hero and each of his 12 Labors is memorialized through the exclusive 12 Labors of Hercules Series from Provident Metals.
