Roar of Orthus is a Greek myth technology in Age of Mythology that is available to worshipers of Aphrodite and can be researched at the Temple. Once researched, it upgrades Nemean Lions to Nemean Rexes, making them 20% less vulnerable to hack and 50% less vulnerable to pierce attacks.

Mythology[]

Echidna was a half-woman, half-snake mother of a great monstrous progeny, including Ladon (a dragon), the Hydra, the Chimera, Orthus (a multi-headed dog) and Cerberus (the multi-headed dog that guards the gates to Erebus). Echidna and Orthus had their own foul brood, including the Greek Sphinx and Nemean Lion. Orthus was guarding the cattle of Geryon when he was strangled by Heracles.
