Hercules was ordered to bring him golden apples which were kept in a garden at the northern edge of the world, and they were guarded not only by a hundred-headed dragon, named Ladon, but also by the Hesperides, nymphs who were daughters of Atlas, the titan who held the sky and the earth upon his shoulders.
Prometheus was bound to the mountain, and every day a monstrous eagle came and ate his liver, pecking away at Prometheus' tortured body.
Hercules showed up and killed the eagle. In gratitude, Prometheus told Hercules the secret to getting the apples to send Atlas after them, instead of going himself. Atlas went to get the apples while Hercules was stuck in Atlas's place, with the weight of the world literally on his shoulders. Upon Atlas return with the golden apples Hercules trick him and when Atlas put the apples on the ground Hercules picked up the apples and quickly run off.
Eurystheus ordered Hercules to go to the Underworld and kidnap the beast called Cerberus (or Kerberos).
Eurystheus must have been sure Hercules would never succeed at this impossible task!
Cerberus was a strange mixture of creatures: he had three heads of wild dogs, a dragon or serpent for a tail, and heads of snakes all over his back.
Hercules threw his strong arms around the beast, perhaps grasping all three heads at once, and wrestled Cerberus into submission. The dragon in the tail of the fierce flesh-eating guard dog bit Hercules, but that did not stop him.
Cerberus had to submit to the force of the hero, and Hercules brought Cerberus to Eurystheus.
