Alkyoneushttp://greekmythology.wikia.com/wiki/Alkyoneus (Αλκυονευς) – Hades-Since Alcyoneus is the only Giant who could not be killed in his homeland of Pallene, Herakles on Athena’s advice dragged him out of his homeland and killed him. Alcyoneus was also the only Giant that did not require joint effort of a God and Mortal.
Alkyoneushttp://greekmythology.wikia.com/wiki/Alkyoneus (Αλκυονευς) was one of the three kings of the Gigantes, son of Gaia and Tartaros and was the eldest of the Thrakian Gigantes. Alkyoneus was born to oppose Hades, God of the Underworld. Alkyoneus was the only Gigante who could be killed by a god or human alone, but he couldn’t be killed in his homeland of Pallene.
Ancient Text: “Herakles first sent an arrow at Alkyoneus (Alcyoneus), who by falling to the earth recovered somewhat. Athene advised Herakles to drag him outside of Pallene, which he did, and Alkyoneus thereupon died.”
-Pseudo-Apollodorus, Bibliotheca 1. 34 (trans. Aldrich) (Greek mythographer C2nd A.D.)
Alcyoneus:http://www.greekmythology.com/Myths/Gigantes/Alcyoneus/alcyoneus.html In Greek mythology, Alcyoneus was the antagonist of the hero Heracles. He was considered to be one of the Gigantes, the children of the Titans Uranus and Gaea. In the Gigantomachy, the war that happened between the Giants and the Olympians, Heracles and Alcyoneus fought each other. However, Alcyoneus was immortal while stepping on his native land and would revive if anyone would try to kill him. So, when Heracles hit him with an arrow and Alcyoneus was about to stand up again, Athena advised Heracles to drag him out of his homeland; that was how Alcyoneus died.Alcyoneus had seven daughters called Alkyonides, who threw themselves into the sea after their father died.
