Continuity 

When Ergenia asks Hercules' team for "the truth", a soldier can be seen in the background wearing the distinctive leather armor which is not distributed by Iolaus until the following scene.
When Hercules battles the Nemean lion, the lion's head alone appears to outsize Hercules entirely, yet the scale of the lion headdress that he wore after slaying the beast is much smaller in comparison.

Factual errors 

In Greek mythology, the god Zeus is the father of a child named Heracles, not Hercules. Hercules is the Roman name and the divine father is called Jupiter. The film producers probably used the name Hercules because it is better known that Heracles.
When Hercules meets Rheseus' army, Rheseus and his men have stirrups. Stirrups were not used in Europe till well after the fall of the Roman Empire.

Revealing mistakes 

Some close-ups of Hercules facing Rheseus' army have been flopped. The rectangular Thracian shields have a space top-right for a spear but in at least two shots the soldiers behind Hercules have a space on the top-left of their shields.

After Hercules saves his companion from a flaming spear, he throws a soldier down a hole. When said soldier hits the rocks before falling down, you can see the prop rocks shrinking under the stunt actor's weight.
