    4. Heracles and the Hero Pattern His mother, Alcmene, is (1) a royal virgin, and his father is (2) King Amphitryon, who is (3) her first cousin. He is reputed to be (5) the son of Zeus, who (4) visited Alcmene in the guise of Amphitryon. At his birth (6) Hera tries to kill him. Heracles = Glory of Hera Heracles = Hercules

    5. Heracles and the Hero Pattern On reaching adulthood he (11) performs feats and fine victories, after which he (10) proceeds to Calydon, where he (12) marries the king's daughter, and (13) becomes ruler. He remains there (14) quietly for some years, after which an accidental manslaughter compels him (17) to flee from the country. He disappears (18) from a funeral pyre (19) on the top of Mt. Oeta. His sons (20) do not succeed him. His body (21) is not found, and (22) he is worshipped in temples. 17 points

    6. Zeus and the Hero Pattern Cronus, the Father of Zeus. [Known as Saturn to the Romans.] Cronus, knowing that one of his children would grow greater than he, swallowed all of them at birth. His queen, the Goddess Rhea, tricked him, by handing him a stone wrapped in swaddling clothes to swallow. The infant Zeus she secreted. Zeus grew to manhood and, as prophesied, made war on his father and overthrew him, casting him down into the depths of Tartarus.
