Historical Background

In Greek mythology, Argus was a giant with 100 eyes. Because of his abundance of eyes, he was considered a great watchman and was employed by the goddess Hera. He was assigned to guard and keep a white cow from Zeus. That cow was Io, a nymph who was sexually involved with Zeus and later turned into a cow as a way to protect Io by Zeus. Zeus dispatched Hermes to slay Argus. He did so by posing as a shepherd and telling boring stories, which put all of Argus' eyes to sleep (whenever Argus slept, he usually kept some eyes open). He then killed the giant. Hera memorialized Argus by putting his eyes on the tail of the peacock, a favorite animal of Hera's, which explains why it drops Peacock Amulet. Argus was also the pet dog from Homer's Odyssey.
