The Story of Orion
Hyries had named him Orion. Orion grew up, he was a great hunter. He was hired by king Oenopion to kill ferocious beasts that scared habitants on the island Chios. He was so happy by his success that he wanted to kill all the animals on earth.
Gaia the earth goddess was not happy. She sent a huge scorpion after Orion. Orion soon realized his sword and shield were to weak. He was stung to death. As a reward Gaia placed the scorpion in the stars. The scorpion now chases the great Orion who was also imprinted in the stars after being killed by the scorpion.
Orion and His Shield
In another version of the story of Orion, he was holding a shield instead of a lions hide.
