Hercules = Horus?
While studying the exploits of Hercules for my translation of the ‘Pillars of Hercules’ (http://www.riaanbooysen.com/terra-aus/87-terraproof1?start=9), I came to the conclusion that Hercules and Horus may have been the same person referred to in antiquity:
1. Both assisted the Gods in their battle against the Titans (Giants)
2. Both survived poisoning attempts through snakes (Horus/Seth, Hercules/ Hera)
3. Two of the twelve labours of Horus were the slaying of the Nemean Lion and the capture of the Ceryneian Hind. The so-called Healing Stela of Hours
shows Horus holding serpents and scorpions in his hands, but more significantly a lion by its tail and a hind by its horns as well. To me this suggests that it was actually Horus who had to perform these tasks, and that these tasks were in fact a step by step battle plan for defeating the Titans (see details at the link above).
Do you think there is any merit in this theory?
