Old Woman


Hercules visits the highly desirable wedding of Epius, the son of the king of Delos and Thera, the daughter of the king of Syos, two neighboring kingdoms who were sworn enemies. Meanwhile Iolaus hasn't learned the lesson of Paris of Troy: he accepts the job -wisely refused by their father Zeus- to judge the beauty contest between three goddesses; instead of the physical and military skills Artemis offers him, or the wisdom Athena tempts him with, he lets Aphrodite bribe him with a golden apple which can make any mortal woman love him. Unfortunately his successful first attempt turns out to be on- the royal bride Thera... Written by KGF Vissers
