Killed By Hercules

Antaeus is a Half-Giant who is the son of Poseidon and Gaea. He guards the shortcut to Mount Aethion and collects skulls of those who dare to trepass his domain. He was considered invincible, for he gathers his strength from the ground.

With the help from Deianeira, Hercules was able to defeat him and left his remains on top of his "trophies".
