One of the legends about "Brabo" says : " In a castle on the banks of the river Scheldt lived the giant Druon Antigoon. All the ships that sailed passed his castle had to pay a heavy toll. Those who refused to pay the toll, had their hand cut off by the giant who then threw it in the river. One day, the roman soldier Silvius Brabo managed to beat the giant. Brabo at his turn cut off the hand of Antigoon and threw it in the Scheldt river. "
