We are proud to introduce the latest figure in our heroic mythology line, Melqart, who is the powerful spiritual predecessor to Hercules (this is not an exaggeration, he was referred to as Tyrian Heracles by the Greeks/Romans).
Quite frankly, he's like an overpowered Hercules.
For starters, he was imbued with divine powers. One of the principle deities of the ancient Phoenicians (modern day Lebanon), Melqart the name translates to King of Earth.
In our design we have the mighty Melqart slaying the seven headed deadly sea serpent Lotan with his signature fenestrated axe. Below written in Phoenician is MLQART, which roughly means King of Earth.
In antiquity Melqart was so revered that the legendary Alexander the Great tried to offer a sacrifice when he conquered the fabled city of Tyre. Even he was refused as the Temple of Melqart was considered sacred.
The brilliant Carthaginian Hannibal Barca, made a sacrifice specifically to Melqart at the Temple of Gades prior to departing in his war against Rome.
If you wanted to be overpowered in ancient times...you evoked Melqart
