"Talus - The Last Giant of the Bronze Age
Talus was the last Bronze Age man, who appeared in the Apollonius of Rhodes' Arognautica. Talus lived and defended the island of Crete. TaluS was the Bronze Giant that Zeus presented to his lover Europa upon bringing her to Crete. Instead of blood, Talus had ichor, the life-blood of the immortals. His only weakness was his behind his ankle.
When Jason and the Argonauts tried to land their ship on Crete, as guardian of the island, Talus began hurling huge boulders at the ship. Medea cast a spell upon Talus, causing the giant to drop one boulder on his leg and bleed to death. "
