    • In Mythology Hercules was mortally wounded from wearing the robe dipped in Nessus' blood. Deianeira gave it to him because he announced his intention to marry the Princess Iole. The reason that Nessus' blood was poisonous is that the arrow of Hercules which which slew him was dipped in the blood of the Lernean Hydra, which was a fatal poison. The Hydra blood was so powerful that it made Nessus' blood poisonous as well.
