Heracles is shown fighting the ferocious Nemean Lion on this ancient Greek pot. After ruining all his weapons on the creature's impervious hide, Heracles resorted to choking it to death. Afterwards, he wore its skull as a helmet and its skin for a cloak. This exceptional piece of ancient Greek pottery is one of more than 1,400 artifacts that are part of a suite of galleries, Worlds Intertwined: Etruscans, Greeks, and Romans, at the Penn Museum.
