Hercules: The Legendary Journeys Season 3 - Episode 18

The evil goddess herself offered Augeus godly powers if he could kill Hercules by sunset. Aphrodite, angered by the king's actions, stepped in to reclaim her temples and protect the townspeople. Augeus - assisted by Hera - managed to imprison Aphrodite briefly, but the goddess joined forces with Hercules and battled the king until his delusion lifted. Augeus wasn't quite back to normal, however: Now he believed he was Ulysses.
