BUSIRIS
The son of Poseidon and a daughter of Epaphus. The Greek mythology made him king of Egypt. The land was afflicted for nine years with a series of bad harvests, and a prophet named Phrsasius, of Cyprus, advised Busiris to sacrifice a stranger every year to Zeus. The king made his counsellor his first victim. When Heracles came to Egypt during his quest for the apples of the Hesperides, he allowed himself to be bound and taken to the altar as a victim. Then he broke his bonds, and slew Busiris, with his sons and his whole following.
