Paris, Louvre

After the hind ordeal was completed, Hercules was ordered to go fetch another wild animal, this time a boar from Mt. Erymanthia. After stopping at his friend Pholus's dwelling for a bit, Hercules caught the boar by frightening it and getting it to run into a net. Eurystheus, was of course, terrified of the result.
