Greek Mythology. The Nemean lion (one of the offspring of Typhon and Echidna) was the first of the monsters slain by Hercules during his twelve labors. Its hide could not be cut by weapons, so he strangled it to death. He was then able to skin the lion with its own claws, and from that point on he used the impenetrable hide as armor.
