Medusa is known throughout mythology as a beauty, youngest of the Gorgon sisters. It is said that the goddess Althena punished her for meeting men at the temple.
Her long and beautiful hair became snakes, her skin covered in bronze-like scales, becoming a monster inside and out. She hid in a remote area with her sisters who felt sorry for her.
Medusa appeared at the temple again, enraged at the goddess, but you put an end to her reign of terror by severing her head. Shortly afterwards, she turned to stone and crumbled.
