Definition: Argus was a giant with 100 eyes whom Hera gave the job of guarding one of her husband's lovers. This unfortunate woman was Io, whom Zeus turned into a cow in an ill-conceived attempt to hide her from his cow-eyed wife. Hermes managed to trick and kill Argus whose eyes Hera put into a peacock's tail.
