Here's a series of VHS covers for the release of TRIUMPH OF HERCULES (1964) starring Dan Vadis, Marilù Tolo, Pierre Cressoy and Renato Rossini (aka Howard Ross, see preceding post). A nice collection of covers, more so than more famous PEPLUM movies out there.

English (US) release
Pretty standard VHS cover. At least the image and actors are from the movie. 

French releases
This high quality VHS package is nice but all wrong. The image on the cover is taken from ULYSSES (1954) but with a new face and body. The back cover features a photo of Yann Larvor in SAMSON & THE MIGHTY CHALLENGE (1964). Both images feature Hercules with a beard but Dan Vadis in this is without a beard.

 Standard cover package with the original poster artwork

German release
 Action-packed cover but all wrong. Again, Hercules doesn't have a beard in this movie.

Italian release
 Pretty low budget release with image from HERCULES THE INVINCIBLE (1964)

Spanish releases
 Nice cover. A collage of different poster artwork from its original release and some added artwork.

 Cover with poster artwork from its original release. 

Totally bizarre release with different artwork and title. But it's the same film, with Dan Vadis and directed by Alberto De Martino.
