  • A man pretending to be Hercules is killed while rescuing two children from a collapsed mine, and prosecutor Spencius accuses the real Hercules of the man's death as well as disrespecting the gods. As Spencius examines witnesses who had encountered Hercules and twists their stories into showing Hercules in a bad light, Hercules battles his own conscience as to how responsible he is for others' actions, leading to an impassioned Spartucus-style speech at the end.

  • Villager Kazankis poses as Hercules and dies trying to rescue in his divine way the victims of a mine cave-in. The local magistrate rules there is enough of a case to refer to Athens prosecutor Spencius's claim that Hercules is responsible for his imitator's death and other fatalities inspired by his 'unnatural' actions outside the law. Hercules agrees to remain in jail until the verdict. At the trial, Spencius elaborates to various forms of inspiration and accuses Hercules of a fundamentally seditious attitude by putting human lives over the law. Hercules deal with the charges, his conscience, an offer from Ares and a loose giant alarm which can't wait.
