, 1st century, AD, p.29.] This constellation is said to represent the Roman Hercules, Greek Herakles, who was the greatest of the Greek heroes and famous for his twelve labors.As an infant Hercules strangled two serpents sent by Juno to kill him as he lay asleep in his cradle.It is suggested that the two serpents represent the the Lunar Nodes.He died on a funeral pyre, became a god, and ascended to Mount Olympus to join the other gods.Engonasin is a Greek title for Hercules, with Roman writers translating it Geniculator or Geniculatus; these terms meaning 'the Kneeling Man'.Engonasi, from , 'on his knees" [Valpy, p.136].See this webpage on Roman Hercules, and this webpage on Greek Heracles, for the mythology associated with Hercules.The name Hercules is from a Latin translation of Greek Herakles.Herakles' name is translated 'the glory of Hera' or 'the fame of Hera', the prefix of his name relates to , variously translated; 'to listen', 'to hear oneself called', 'to be spoken of', 'called upon'.The second element in Hercules' name comes from the Indo-European root *, to praise, tell), cliometrics (the systematic use of economic theory and econometric techniques to study economic history), Hercules (from Greek Herakles), sarod (a many-stringed lute of northern India that is played with a plectrum), Clovis (relating to a prehistoric human culture in North America from about 12,000 to 9,000 B. [see Wordnik] Heracles was the son of the god Zeus and a mortal woman, Alcmene, whom Zeus visited in the form of her husband, Amphitryon.C., distinguished by sharp fluted projectile points made of chalcedony or obsidian). Early in life Herakles was called Alcaeus, or Alcides, after his mother Alcmene, the name Heracles came later.Heracles comes from - in his name refers to Hera (Roman Juno), wife of Zeus (Roman Jupiter).His name is somewhat ironic as the events in the myth of Herakles are motivated by the unrelenting hostility of Hera toward him for being Zeus' illicit son.The etymology of his name as 'the glory of Hera' is unmistakable as the Greeks understood it; "as the hero's name makes clear, he owes his heroic identity to his and, ultimately, to Hera" , even though she persecuted, and tried to eliminate him throughout his life.Hercules becomes reconciled with Hera through death and marries her daughter Hebe on Mount Olympos.Hera's name is believed to be related to the word 'air' and Hercules or Herakles could also be interpreted as the 'glory of the air', or 'clashing against the air', as Porphyry understood it to mean: "But inasmuch as the sun wards off the evils of the earth, they called him Heracles (from his clashing against the air) in passing from east to west.And they invented fables of his performing twelve labours, as the symbol of the division of the signs of the zodiac in heaven; and they arrayed him with a club and a lion's skin, the one as an indication of his uneven motion, and the other representative of his strength in "Leo" the sign of the zodiac." [Porphyry, On Images, (c. 304), Fragment 8.] "Hercules, the figure on bended knee and called by the Greek name of Engonasin, about whose origin no certainty prevails.Of this constellation is begotten the desertion, craftiness, and deceit characteristic of its children, and from it comes the thug who terrorizes the heart of the city.If perchance his mind is moved to consider a profession, Engonasin [a Greek title for constellation Hercules] will inspire him with enthusiasm for risky callings, with danger the price, for which he will sell his talents: daring narrow steps on a path without thickness, he will plant firm feet on a horizontal tightrope; then, as he attempts an upward route to heaven, (on a sloping tightrope) he will all but lose his footing and, suspended in mid-air, he will keep a multitude in suspense upon himself" [Manilius, Another title for Hercules was Trapezius, a trapeze artist.Tightrope walkers perform a balancing act, they need to know how to keep their centre of gravity constant so they don’t overbalance and topple off the tightrope. The second element in the name Herakles , ‘to listen’.His name might be analyzed as 'listening in the air', suggesting an early amphibious creature that emerged from the ocean and developed an ear function that gave the ability to listen in the then hostile air [hostile Hera] when the air was 'thin' due to low oxygen levels.The myth describes how Hercules, in a state of madness induced by Hera, heard voices in his ears telling him to kill his family.Listening is a function of the inner ear, the inner ear is also referred to as the Labyrinth.The ancient name for epilepsy was 'the disease of Hercules', it was also called the falling sickness, the sufferer loses balance and suddenly falls to the ground. The word labor resembles the first element in labyrinth (labyr-inth); Virgil makes this connection: , common in the medieval period.Norden refers to this etymology as 'much-discussed in antiquity,' but I know only of references to it in medieval sources, some of them not fully published, which are described by Doob.Doob also explores the connection between labyrinthine imagery and An adjacent constellation Corona Borealis, relates to the crown of Ariadne.Ariadne gave Theseus a ball of thread (clew or clue) to escape the Minotaur's labyrinth.Inflammation of the labyrinth, Labyrinthitis, can cause balance disorders.
