Three Bodied Geryon

Geryon was the son of Khrysaor. He was a giant with three bodies from the waist up. Geryon had a big farm with cattle and was the owner of Orthos, the two-headed dog, brother of Kerberos.

The tenth labour of Herakles was to steal the Cattle of Geryon. Herakles first fought Geryon's servant, Eurytion, and Orthos, and killed all of them, then stole the cattle.
