Argus's eyes Picture

A Greek legend says Argus was Hera's trusted guard. He had one hundred eyes, so he was always watching, for when some of his eyes closed to sleep, the rest remained open.

But Zeus knew that Hermes, god of the thieves, of the cunning, of the liars, of the orators and wit, of invention and travels, would find a way to get past Argus. And indeed he did: disguised as a shepherd, he sang and played so well that the guardian slowly fell asleep and all his eyes closed. Hermes slained him and freed Io.
