Foot (Heel)

Although he was 70 meters tall in the film Jason and the Argonauts, Talos was eight feet tall in actually mythology. Talos mistook the argonauts for pirates, and threatened to destroy their ship. His only weakness was his feet, which the Argonauts quickly discovered.

BehaviorEdit

Talos became the first major obstacle in Jason's journey. After landing on Crete (The Isle of Bronze), Jason ordered his men to take only food and water, but not to disturb the treasures of the island. Unfortunately, Hercules did not heed Jason's warning, and stole a Brooch pin. This caused Talos to think the Argonauts were pirates, for he defended the treasure. Although big in size, he was slow, meaning the crewmen were quick in running from the bronze giant. Jason looked to the ancient Greek goddess Hera, who directed him to an large oval peg on Talos' right foot. Jason bravely went up close to Talos and removed the peg, releasing gallons of boiling water called Ichor (the life-blood of the Gods), and after clutching his neck and gasping loudly for air, Talos fell down and broke into pieces.

TriviaEdit

  • Tom Hanks said the Jason and the Argonauts was the best film in history.
  • In Greek History, Talos was only eight feet high, but was later changed to the size of the Collosus of Rhodes, so it would seem more threatening.
  • There was a specialy made statue made for the myths and legends exhibition in London.
