... gives a content overview of the older "Destruction of Troya". I've selected all themes, which relate to Hercules in sequence. That's a finishing part of book 1 and the complete book 2 (about 40-45% of the complete text). There's no sign of a counting of the 12 works, the 11th and 12th work is at least partly missing, Ladon and Atlas (11th work) do not appear, also not the freedom for Prometheus (12th work), but Cerberus is captured (also 12th work). However, I also guess, that the Cremona giants don't appear in many other Hercules collections. The theme Cremona is embedded in 2 Cacus adventures, and I'm impressed by 3 (not 1) Nemean lions.
