Here's one Greek myth that I have a special connection with (my last name ):
The basic gist of the story was that Argus, a giant with many eyes that never slept, was commissioned by Hera to guard Io from Zeus (who, we all know, tried to copulate with everything that moved). Zeus had Hermes enchant Argus into sleep and kill him.
For his sacrifice, Hera honored Argus by putting his eyes on the tail of the peacock.
