Details

This beautiful 999 fine silver, has an antique finish, and features three of the Hydra heads, picked out with gilding and this will remain the signature of the series.
In Greek mythology, the Ceryneian Hind, also called Cerynitis or the Golden Hind, was an enormous hind that lived in Keryneia, Greece. It had golden antlers like a stag and hooves of bronze or brass, and it was said that it could outrun an arrow in flight. It was sacred to Artemis.
Story: Eurystheus originally ordered Hercules to perform ten labours. Hercules accomplished these tasks, but Eurystheus refused to recognize two: the slaying of the Lernaean Hydra, as Hercules’ nephew and charioteer Iolaus had helped him; and the cleansing of the Augeas, because Hercules accepted payment for the labour. Eurystheus set two more tasks (fetching the Golden Apples of Hesperides and capturing Cerberus), which Hercules also performed, bringing the total number of tasks to twelve:
1 - Slay the Nemean lion.
2 – Slay the nine-headed Lernaean Hydra.
3 – Capture the Ceryneian Hind.
4 – Capture the Erymanthian Boar.
5 – Clean the Augean stables in a single day.
6 – Slay the Stymphalian birds.
7 – Capture the Cretan Bull.
8 – Steal the Mares of Diomedes.
9 – Obtain the girdle of Hippolyta.
10 – Obtain the cattle of the monster Geryon.
11 – Steal the apples of the Hesperides.
12 – Capture and bring back Cerberus.
