By the Gods!

Alessandra Panaro and Rosalba Neri are rivals in HERCULES AGAINST MOLOCH (1963)

This is one of those odd casting situations in which Rosalba plays a mother of a certain age. is made to look older even though she was as young as Alessandra. Neri was born in 1938 while Panaro was born in 1939. Both actresses are still alive. This scene is included in the SAME VOICE...DIFFERENT ACTRESSES compilation posted below. I consider both 'Queens' of PEPLUM cinema. This screenshot is from a widescreen copy of it which I'm thinking of making a Fan Dub of it, even though the image is not super sharp.

Even though it heavily borrows clips from THE BACCHANTES, this still is my favorite Peplum flick. Here Rosalba Queen Demeter chews out the impertinent Princess Medea: "THAT WILL DO, MEDEA!!"

My only regret is that Alessandra never got to play an Evil Queen or bad girl
as most of the female leads did
