The first labor was to kill the Leon Nemios, a giant lion which plaugued Nemea in the Argolis. King Eurystheus commanded Herakles to kill it, but its hide was invincible to weapons. Herakles cornered the lion in its cave, and strangled to death. He then skinned the lion's hide and made a cape out of it. Hera gave it a constellation, Leo.
