The thirty-third story in the Μεταμορφώσεων Συναγωγή of Antoninus Liberalis begins with the passing of Heracles. It goes on to recount Eurystheus' persecution of the Heracleidae, their flight from their ancestral land to Athens, and the subsequent battle fought on their behalf by the Athenians, which resulted in the defeat and death of Eurystheus.
