Mythology of the constellation Cancer

Early Egyptians saw CANCER, The Crab, as a lowly scarab or dung beetle, representing the dawn Sun-god Khephri, a symbol of fertility. The Greeks, however, believed this constellation represented the giant crab which continually nipped at Hercules' feet, hampering him as he battled with the poisonous, nine-headed monstrous Hydra.
