The earliest recorded use of the term occurs in texts attributed to the archaic Greek poets Homer and Hesiod. Both describe dead heroes as hemitheoi, or ‘half Gods’.

In these cases, the word did not literally mean that these figures had one parent who was divine and one who was mortal. Instead, those who demonstrated ‘strength, power, good family, and good behavior’ were termed heroes, and after death they could be called hemitheoi, a process that has been referred to as ‘heroization’.
