Stainless Steel Ring: Brief History of the Nemean Lion

Nemean Lion was believed to be representing the constellation of Leo according to mythologists. In the Greek mythology, Nemean Lion first appears in the first twelve trials of Hercules (a demigod, the son of Zeus).

The Lion was thought to be the offspring of a god and a monster Typhon and Echidna (snake bride), which makes this terrible feline a sibling to other monsters in the Greek mythology namely Cerberus, Chimera, and the Sphinx to name a few.

Hera, the wife of Zeus (King of the Gods), was known to be the “God Mother” of the monster/god Typhon who fathered the Lion of Nemea. Hera begged Gaia and Tartarus to create Typhon to wreak havoc in the mortal world. Her anger grew when her husband Zeus fathered Hercules, sent the lion of Nemea where a huge shrine of Zeus was located. The Indestructible lion would guard the shrine, thus anyone wanting to worship shall have to go through the monster.
