The Girdle of Hippolyta was an item to be obtained by Heracles as part of his 9th labour. It was a gift from Ares to his daughter. When Heracles visited Hippolyta, she gave up the girdle willingly, however Hera, wishing to obstruct Heracles wherever possible, started rumours Heracles was going to abduct Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons. It isbelieved that in the ensuing chaos, Hippolyta was killed and Heracles escaped, though it is sometimes she escaped with him.
