Eurytus

by Micha F. Lindemans
The king of Oeschalia in Thessaly. He promised the hand of his daughter Iole to everyone who would beat his sons in a contest with bow and arrow. Heracles won the contest but Eurytus denied him his daughter's hand, so Heracles killed him and his sons and abducted Iole.
