Default Hercules/Ancient Greece/Trials DOS game

Hi, I am looking for an old DOS game I used to play at a friend's house in the mid-80's. It was about Greek myths, and consisted of traveling all over a map of ancient Greece, and completing the trials of Hercules. The problem is that I can't even remember the name of the game to begin really searching for it. Can anyone help me?

Thanks.

No. Neither of those are in the right time frame. I was definitely playing this game around 1985, or 86. The graphics were CGA, or monchrome.

Neither of these is for DOS, though:

Ok, I'm pretty certain it was Return of Heracles. I don't think the friend had an Apple II, but we certainly weren't playing on an Atari or Commodore system. Were Apple II programs able to run under DOS?

From what I gather, Apple II used several different OSes in its' history. Two of them were similar to MS-DOS.
