The Girdle of Hyppolyte
Hippolyte was the queen of Amazons, a tribe of women warriors. Hercules, as a task, had to take the queen’s girdle (a belt from god Ares to Hippolyte). Hercules had to kill Hippolyte after Hera played a plot between the two heroes. This task symbolizes the demolishing of the matriarchic dominance in those ages.
