Opinion

From Library Staff

Join the discussion on October 16, 2016. Attributed to the ancient Greek author Apollodorus, and possibly the first encyclopedic summary of Greek mythology, The Library is our best single source for many myths, including Hercules' famous 12 labors.

(1st or 2nd century AD) Possibly the first encyclopedic summary of Greek mythology, attributed to the ancient Greek author Apollodorus. It is our best single source for many myths, including Hercules' (Herakles) famous 12 labors.
