In Greek mythology, Talos was a bronze man whom Zeus gave to Europa to guard Crete. He had a single vein from his neck to his ankle with a bronze nail on its end.

When the Argonauts came near Crete, he threatened their ship by throwing it with rocks. Medea tricked him into grazing his ankle on a rock, opening the vein and causing the ichor inside to flow out which caused his death.
