For the ninth labor, Eurystheus ordered Hercules to bring him the belt of Hippolyta .
The Amazons lived apart from men, and if they ever gave birth to children, they kept only the females and reared them to be warriors like themselves. Eurystheus wanted Hippolyta's belt as a present to give to his daughter, and he sent Hercules to bring it back.
Hercules' friends realized that the hero could not fight against the whole Amazon army by himself, so they joined with him and set sail in a single ship. Its prow is in the form of a boar's head, and it has a high fore-deck, steering oars and a landing ladder at the stern.
Eight figures can be seen rowing the upper set of oars (there are at least as many people on the lower deck) and the sail is fully extended, giving the impression that the boat is moving “full speed ahead.” Photograph courtesy of the Trustees of the British Museum, London After a long journey, they reached the land of the Amazons and put in at the harbor.
Photograph by Maria Daniels, courtesy of The University of Pennsylvania Museum She asked Hercules why he had come, and when he told her, she promised to give him the belt. But the goddess Hera knew that the arrival of Hercules meant nothing but trouble for the Amazons.
Disguised as an Amazon warrior, Hera went up and down the army saying to each woman that the strangers who had arrived were going to carry off the queen. Collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum, Malibu, California The women warriors charged on horseback down to the ship.
