Erymanthian boar In Greek mythology, the boar captured by Heracles as his fourth labor; it lived on Mount Erymanthus in Arcadia. Erymanthus is also the name of a son of Apollo who was blinded by Aphrodite because he had seen the goddess bathing. In retaliation Apollo
transformed himself into a boar and killed Admis, the young lover of Aphrodite.
