    However, Hercules began long before the founding of Rome. It wasn't just a couple of generations before. There were many, many centuries between the Greek era and the Roman. Rome was not founded until the 8th century BCE. Hercules goes back to at least the 13th century. His mortal life ended before the Trojan War, which is currently believed to be 13th century BCE; used to be 12thC BCE.

    Neolithic is pushing it too far, imo.

I agree. The 'Golden Age of Greece' has a fairly definite timeline.

On the other hand, the legend if Gilgamesh really IS older, and I have no objection to Gil being older than Herc. What bugged me was the suggestion that Gil (the Eternal) actually performed some of Herc's specific feats.
