She bore Nestor, Chromius, and Periclymenus, and she also bore that marvellously lovely woman Pero, who was wooed by all the country round; but Neleus would only give her to him who should raid the cattle of Iphicles
from the grazing grounds of Phylace, and this was a hard task.
Him she bare through the embrace of the son of Cronos lord of dark clouds and the other, Iphicles
, of Amphitryon the spear- wielder -- offspring distinct, this one of union with a mortal man, but that other of union with Zeus, leader of all the gods.
She gave birth to twins, of which Heracles was the son of Zeus and Iphicles
the son of her husband.
"The most beautiful body of ours would perhaps be as much inferior to the most beautiful Greek, as Iphicles
was to his brother Hercules," Winckelmann speculated.
Of these unions were born twin boys, of whom Iphicles
was the son of Amphitryon, Heracles the son of Zeus.
