I said Heracles. Judges?
I also said Heracles, Unless Eurystheus somehow points to Roman rather than Greek, I think it has to be acceptable. Nothing else about the clue could rule it out.

John Boy: I'm not going to quote your spoiler about Friday's game in the thread for Thursday's game, but I would appreciate it if you could be more careful about that sort of thing in the future.
