Argus vs. Hermes

Case Description: Complainant (Argus) accuses Defendant (Hermes) of murder. Zeus sent Hermes to free Io, and the messenger of the gods lulled Argus to sleep with his lyre, then chopped off the many-eyed giant's head.

Case Status: Case dismissed. Zeus told Hermes to do it, so it's not like we could do anything about what happened. The queen of the gods honored Argus by placing his eyes on the tail of the peacock, her sacred animal.
