"Let each new hero come
Seeking the golden apples and Atlas:
He must wrestle with me before he pass
Into that realm of fame
Among sky-born and royal.
He may well throw me and renew my birth
But let him not plan, lifting me off the earth,
My elevation, my fall."
It tells the story of Antaeus, who was unbeatable as long as he was in contact with his mother, the earth. In a wrestling match with Hercules he was lifted up off the ground and was then, for the first time in his life, defeated.
