Armor of Heracles


The Greek hero Heracles is typically portrayed wearing the impervious hide of the Nemean Lion. However, before he set out on his labors, Hephaestus made him a set of shining bronze greaves and Athena gave him a bronze breastplate. He also owned a Greek helmet made of adamant, a spear, quiver, and a shield. His equipment is described in great detail by Hesiod.

In an alternative account,

"Herakles was given a sword from Hermes, bow and arrows from Apollon, chest-armour of gold from Hephaistos, and a peplos from Athene."
