A large and ferocious lion that lived on the plains of Nemea, it terrorized the area and could not be killed by normal men, who ran in fear from its mighty roar. The first labor of Heracles was to kill the Nemean Lion. When Heracles discovered his arrows and other weapons had no effect on the beast, the hero closed with it and used his incredible strength to strangle it. He skinned the beast and returned with its skin as a cloak. Heracles was thereafter depicted wearing the cloak of the Nemean Lion.
