Depicts Hercules killing the Hydra

The Hydra is a nine-headed serpent like snake. It was said that if you cut off one hydra head, two more would grow back. It is also said that the Hydra's teeth were able to raise skeletons from the dead.

The second of the 12 labors of Hercules was to kill the Hydra. The Lernaean Hydra had nine heads, which, however, when cut off, two more grew in its place. The monster also had one immortal head that was in the middle. All of the heads could spit deadly acid as well. To defeat the Hydra, Hercules called on his friend Iolaus for help. As soon as Hercules cut off one head, Iolaus would seal the wound with a red hot poker so that nothing could grow to replace it. After removing the Hydra's immortal head, Hercules buried it under a large rock. Then he collected the monster's poisonous blood. In later adventures, he dipped his arrows in the blood so that they would instantly kill whomever they struck.
