Hide in Jar

Hid in Jar King Eurystheus was so afraid of his heroic cousin [Herakles] that he hid in a storage jar. From the safety of this hiding place he issued the order for another Labor. Heracles was to seek out and destroy the monstrous and many-headed Hydra. Cited from Website: Hercules Eurystheus, the man who had assigned the task to Hercules, was so afraid of the fearsome beast that he jumped into a pithos (large storage jar) to hide. From the spittle of the dog which fell upon earth, the first poisonous plants were born, including deadly aconite. Cited from Website Wiki: Cerberus
