HERCULES

Roman Hero God

Roman revamp of Heracles the Greek Hero

The son of Jupiter, he started off a mere mortal with a big club and ended up a semi-God with his own seat at the Heavenly feast.

With a near-identical life history to his Greek counterpart, only the names have been changed and a few details Romanified. So we suggest you consult our entry on Heracles for further info.
