Leo is the fifth astrological sign of the zodiac. In Greek mythology, Leo was identified as the Nemean Lion which was killed by Heracles (Hercules) during the first of his twelve labours. The Lion was impervious to any weaponry. Realizing that he must defeat the Lion with his bare hands, Hercules slipped into the Lion's cave and engaged it at close quarters. When the Lion pounced, Hercules caught it in midair, one hand grasping the Lion's forelegs and the other its hind legs, and bent it backwards, breaking its back and freeing the trapped maidens. Zeus commemorated this labor by placing the Lion in the sky.
Some mythologists believe that in Sumeria, Leo represented the monster Humbaba, who was killed by Gilgamesh. Humbaba's face is that of a lion. "When he looks at someone, it is the look of death." "Humbaba's roar is a flood, his mouth is death and his breath is fire!!" Another description says, "he had the paws of a lion and a body covered in thorny scales; his feet had the claws of a vulture, and on his head were the horns of a wild bull; his tail and phallus each ended in a snake's head."
I love both of these myths, but my Leo killed both Heracles and Gilgamesh. He is shown in this illustration with a crown of horns, holding the skulls of the heroes who tried to kill him.
