The story behind the Marble Hercules and Lichas statue:
In the Book IX of the “Metamorphoses”, Ovid tells a story: When Hercules put on a shirt poisoned by Nessus’s blood: driven mad by the pain, and not knowing it was a scheme by the centaur, his enemy – he assumed his servant Lichas had betrayed him.
According to Ovid’s work, Hercules yelled at him in pain. “Was it you, Lichas, brought this fatal gift? Shall you be called the author of my death?” The poor servant trembled and muttered a few words, then “groveled at his feet, and begged for mercy”. But Hercules “shake him three times, once again circumventing his head, throwing him into the catapult and into the waves of the Euboic Sea.”
