Hera employed Argus Security, Inc. to keep an eye on Io, whom hubby Zeus was chasing, having turned her into a cow to avoid detection. Hera had already hidden Io in a herd, but she wasn’t taking any chances.
Hera was most upset when she found the head and in a rare moment of compassion donated the eyes to be used in peacock’s tails. Could somebody please do a count?
Argus also had a surname ‘Panoptes’ (He who sees all) which was given to him to avoid confusion with lots of other characters called Argos, and also the Argonauts.
Before his untimely end, Argus went into the fight business. He had already killed a very tough ravaging bull and Echidna, although he had to hit her when she wasn’t looking.
