Historical Background[edit]

In Greek mythology, the Nemean Lion was a monstrous lion with hide so thick, no weapons could penetrate it. It lurked in Nemea and devoured many villagers. The 1st Labor given to Hercules was to kill the Nemean Lion and bring back its hide. Hercules tried to kill it with arrows, a wooden club, a bronze sword, but nothing could penetrate its skin. Hercules was able to kill it by fighting it with his bare hands and strangling the beast. Hercules had difficulty skinning the beast, but eventually managed to do so by using the Nemean Lion’s own claws.

The Nemean Lion was the offspring of the monsters Typhon and Echidna. Its siblings were Chimera, Cerberus, Orthrus (a 2-headed monster dog), Hydra, Ladon, Ethon, and the Sphinx.
