The golden apples of the Hesperides metope from the pronaos of the Temple of Zeus. Ancient Olympia, Peloponnese Greece. Now in the Archaeological museum, this is the best preserved of the metopes and depicts Atlas having returned from heaven holding out apples to Herakles. Athena, as a peaceful goddess, with an easy movement of her hand helps the hero who still supports the sky.
