The Amazonian queen who possessed a magical girdle (a waist belt that signified her authority as queen of the Amazons) given to her by her father Ares, the god of war. Hippolyta figures prominently in the myths of both Heracles and Theseus.
The myths about her are varied enough that they may therefore be about several different women.
The name Hippolyta comes from Greek roots meaning ‘horse’ and ‘let loose’.
In the myth of Heracles, Hippolyta’s girdle (ζωστὴρ Ἱππολύτης) was the object of his ninth labor.
He was sent to retrieve it for Admete, the daughter of King Eurystheus.
Most versions of the myth indicate that Hippolyta was so impressed with Heracles that she gave him the girdle without argument, perhaps while visiting him on his ship.
