Fifth Labor: Augean Stables • Augeas, King of Elis in NW Peloponnesus, had never cleaned his stables • Cleaning the stables not so much impossible as humiliating – Not like the other labors, added to the group later? Maybe once 10 labors? • Heracles diverts the river and flushes the stables in one day – Never even gets his hands dirty! – Brains to use the river, brawn to redirect it

Sixth Labor: Stymphalian Birds • Swarms of birds in Lake Stymphalis in Arcadia (central Peloponnesus) • These man-eating birds had wings that could fire bronze arrows, beaks that could pierce armor • Heracles flushes them up by clanging bronze castanets given to him by Athena – Then he shoots most of them with arrows, a few escape to the Black Sea – But they are gone forever for Greece proper

The Twelve Labors = 6 + 6 • First 6 labors all set in the Peloponnesus, relatively close to Mycenae – Shows development of the story: a few labors became 6, then all way up to 12? • Second 6 labors involve greater and greater distances from Mycenae, eventually all the way to Hades – Shows development of Heracles from mortal hero to immortal who can overcome death
