Alexiares & Anicetus

Anicetus and Alexiares were two demi-gods, who presided over the defence and fortification of towns and citadels.

Residence: Mount Olympus
Parents: Heracles and Hebe

Their names mean “the unconquerable one” from the Greek anikêtos and “he who wards off war” from alexis and arês. They were sons of Heracles and Hebe who were born after the hero’s ascension to Mount Olympus. The pair were the gatekeepers of Olympus, a role which was also assigned to their immortal father.
