In Greek mythology, Cerberus (/ˈsɜːrbərəs/; Greek: Κέρβερος Kérberos [ˈkerberos]), often referred to as the hound of Hades, is a multi-headed dog that guards the gates of the Underworld to prevent the dead from leaving. He was the offspring of the monsters Echidna and Typhon, and was usually described as having three heads, a serpent for a tail, and snakes protruding from multiple parts of his body. Cerberus is primarily known for his capture by Heracles, one of Heracles' twelve labours. Wikipedia
Cerberus (-i, m. ; Graece Κέρβερος) est monstrum, filius Typhonis Echidnaeque, canis immanis tribus capitibus (quinquaginta apud Hesiodum, centum autem apud Horatium), qui portam taenariam custodiebat. Collum eius horrebat serpentibus venenum continentibus. Custos inferorum ante antrum Stygis (flumen in Orco) vigilabat. Non impediebat mortales quin inirent, sed exire non passus est. Qui cum Cerbero certare audebant, tametsi iam mortui sunt, sine misericordia a Cerbero dilacerabantur. Vicipaedia
Ὁ Κέρβερος υἱὸς ἦν τοῦ Τυφῶνος καὶ τῆς Ἐχίδνης. Κύων ὑπερμεγέθης ὢν τοῦ Ἅιδου τὰς πύλας ἐφύλαττε, ἵνα μὴ αἱ τῶν νεκρῶν ψυχαὶ φύγωσιν. Εἶχεν ὁ Κέρβερος τρεῖς μὲν κυνῶν κεφαλὰς, σῶμα δ᾿ ἰσχυρὸν καὶ ἐπὶ τῷ νώτῳ ἐχιδνῶν κεφαλὰς πολλάς, θαῦμα ἰδεῖν. Ἀπολλόδωρος
