Storyboard Text

  • The first step of the labor was for Heracles to go to king Augeas, without revealing he had been commanded to do so, and offer to clean out his stables for a reward.
  • He then watched the beasts come home from the fields which included hundreds of sheep and cattle and a few dogs.
  • Heracles then went with King Augeas and marked the pens and the quantities of the dung inside and thought of a way he could carry all of it out.
  • He then watched the herds leave the pens and go out into the fields the next morning and dug a ditch from the beds of the rivers to the stables. 
  • Heracles dammed the streams by lifting up rocks and logs that others could not and let the water flow through them.
  • By the end of the labor, Heracles had knocked down the the dams and blocked the trenches before finding King Augeas and showing him his work. King Augeas was furious because of the fact that he did not think that Heracles would succeed and he had to now give him a reward. Although Heracles did the task, King Eurystheus refuse to count the labor because he had gotten a reward for it.
