    1. Lovely battle scene with Herakles and Iolaus versus Ares and Cycnus Brothers against father and son with the requisite god meddling ahead of time Nicely done if brief I wandered over to read it after The Seven Against Thebes because I was so enad with the shields descriptions in it and so totally worth it The shield itself is a set of stories But it ends with a nice bang Even so, the son of Amphitryon, unsated of battle, stood eagerly face to face with Ares, nursing courage in his heart And Ares [...]

    2. Generic protagonist Heracles, god like son of Zeus, and his best bud, the goddess his half sister Athena roam around Greece, fucking up everybody s day and high fiving Nice It may be that they are full blooded siblings Although Heracles is the offspring of Zeus and some mortal bimbo, Athena was born full grown, fully ard, and whooping war cries out of Zeus forehead, technically by C section via Hephaestus battle ax Half siblinghood by definition requires one shared parent and one different paren [...]

    4. I am not sure what to think about it While in the begging conciseness of this amazed me, and Hesiod is really a good poet, it soon felt like too dry story Long description of shield, dense description of action Not bad, but yet, not epic enough to be great epic, and not something else enough to be something else.

    5. stumbled upon this chasing phantoms and citations for another project despite the fact that it didn t really have what i was looking for translation issue of amber vs electrum , this was pretty cool the shield must have had a radius of like 10 feet to fit all the elaborate metalwork, but i dont know what would be appropriate for heracles
