Long Description:
Herakles / Herkules byl v recke mytologii syn Diuv a Alkmenin. Byl obdaren nadlidskou silou, odvahou i duvtipem a byl vzorem pro hrdinu a muze.

Prvni z Herkulovych ukolu (viz baje) bylo zabit Nemejskeho lva. Bylo to obrovske zvire s nezranitelnou kuzi. Kdyz Herkules dorazil do Nemeie, nenasel nikoho, kdo by mu ukazal cestu nebo stopy. Lev vyhubil nebo zahnal vsechny lidi z okoli. Dlouho patral v lesich i kopcich, az narazil na stopu. Vystrelil na lva sipy, ale ty se jenom odrazily od kozichu a neublizily. Vzal na lva mec, ale ten se ohnul. Pak se rozmachl svym kyjem, trefil lva do cenichu a ten zalezl do jeskyne se dvema vchody. Herkules uzavrel jeden vchod, druhym do jeskyne vstoupil, chytil lva za hlavu a tak ho sviral, az se lev udusil. Mrsinu pote prinesl do Myken. Ukol mu zabral tricet dni a prisel pry pri nem o jeden prst. Ovsem zjiskal za to paradni neprustrelny palst ze lvi kuze :).

Heracles/Hercules was a divine hero in Greek mythology, the son of Zeus and Alcmene, foster son of Amphitryon and great-grandson (and half-brother) of Perseus. He was the greatest of the Greek heroes, a paragon of masculinity, the ancestor of royal clans who claimed to be Heracleidae and a champion of the Olympian order against chthonic monsters. In Rome and the modern West, he is known as Hercules, with whom the later Roman Emperors, in particular Commodus and Maximian, often identified themselves.

Fighting Nemean lion was first of Hercules tasks (read the saga). Nemean lion was lion with strong skin, that coludn't be penetrated. Thats why Hercules fought lion by club and finally he choked him to death.
