ΤΗΕ ΜΥΤΗ

Perseus was the son of Zeus and Danae. He is best known as the slayer of the Gorgon Medusa, a fearsome monster and as the rescuer of the  Ethiopian princess Andromeda, with whom after their death were put up in  the sky as constellations. The myth starts when the Oracle of Delphi warns Acrisius, King of Argos, that  his own grandson would kill him. Fearing this prophecy, he locks his only  daughter Danae. However, Zeus took the form of a golden rain and seduced her, giving birth to Perseus. When Acrisius realized he had a grandson he set them into the wild sea. They  were landed on the island of Serifos. Island’s King Polydectes challenged  Perseus to kill the Gorgon Medusa. Perseus started his journey to the cave of Medusa, somewhere in Africa and  met the Gray Women who helped him. Having winged sandals and a cap which made him invisible, along with Athena’s shield and Hermes’ sword, Perseus approached Medusa looking at her reflection on Athena’s shiny  shield and cut off her head with the sword of Hermes.
