(Greek Creature) PANOPTES

Also known as ARGUS, ARGUS PANOPTES

Giant brother of a Nymph called Io.

He had one hundred eyes which made him an ideal night watchman as only a few of them slept at any one time.

He helped out the Olympians by fettling Echidna the mother of all monsters while she slept, even though she was thought to be immortal and his last errand for his boss Hera was to tie Zeus' white heifer to a tree. Unbeknownst to him the she-cow was really his sister, Io, and Hera had discovered she was another of her husbands many squeezes.

Zeus ordered Hermes to kill Panoptes and release the cow, which he did after disguising himself as a shepherd and lulling every one of the giants eyes to sleep with a combination of sweet music and the most boring stories ever told. His dead eyes were then transferred by Hera onto Peacock feathers.
