Lichas

Greek - A herald to Heracles. He rescued the bones of Orestes from Tegea whereafter, as foretold by the Delphic Oracle, Sparta won every battle with the Tegeans. It was he who carried the poisoned robe sent by Deianeira which killed Heracles who, in his agony, grabbed the messenger by one foot and threw him to his death from the top of Mount Oeta. He was also said to have been transformed into a rock. In some lore, occasionally referred to as Lichas.
