    Argos was the 100eyed giant whom Hera ordered to guard her husband Zeus's love interest Io and who got killed by Hermes. And that's not even the weirdest part of the story.

* Mycenae  -> 24°M (00:03)
    According to Greek myths Mycenae was founded by Perseus, beheader of Medusa and Husband of Andromeda. Also a certain Helen of Sparta was born here and later moved to Troy involuntarily

    The oracle of Delphi is part of many stories.. she prophecised Leonidas' death and refused to help Heracles unless he would serve as a slave for a year..
