Herakles and Olympic gates

Post  spokane89 on Fri Jun 26, 2015 4:00 am

Are there any classical writings on the meaning behind Herakles ascending to godhood and then becoming the gatekeeper to Olympus? Who could he possibly be keeping out anyway? I could see it as meaning that he was the last mortal to attain godhood, and now serves the divine purpose of keeping mortals well.....mortal? Or at least, never attaining a level beyond that of the ancestor daimones.
