|A quote on Hercules by Thomas Huxley (1860), wherein he describes theologians as snakes falling by the wayside of each new science, e.g. Darwin's evolution; the rendition of Hercules as a youth fighting snakes, to note, is a Greek rescript of Horus the youth battling Apep, the famous night snake that battles all the sun gods.|

“Varro claimed to have identified forty-three bearers of the name Hercules (so Servius son Virgil, Aen. 8 564).”— Patrick Walsh (1997), notes on Cicero’s On the Nature of the Gods 
“The wolf was a symbol of Benjamin (the Hebrew Horus), which along with Osiris were major inspirations (role models) for Alexander. Alexander strove to invert the traditional metamorphosis of a Horus that (through death) became an Osiris. He was instead an Osiris that shed this role (also through a symbolic death) in order to become a Horus. Consistent with this, the new god Serapis could be depicted with the club of Hercules (Horus).”— Charles Pope (2016), Alexander the Great: Beyond the Divide
