The stables of Augeas metope
The last metope of the Temple of Zeus in Olympia illustrating the cleaning of the stables of Augeas, one of the Hercules deads. Hercules performed this task by diverting the course of the Alpheios river through the stables. Athena wearing a helmet and shield for the first time, points her spear at the point where Hercules should dig a groove, in order to unite the two rivers, the Peneus and Alpheus, the waters of which would carry the manure from stables of Augeas.
