Medusa also called the Gorgon, is in Greek mythology one of the three Gorgons (with her sisters Euryale and Stheno).
Daughter of Phorcys and Keto, and therefore granddaughter of the union of the Earth (Gaia) with the Ocean (Pontos), she is the only one of the three sisters to be mortal.
She belongs to the group of primordial deities, just like her cousins, the Chimera and the Lernaean Hydra, who also had traits associated with the image of the serpent and were destroyed by heroes. Although it appears on the pediment of several temples, it was not the object of any worship.
His eyes have the power to petrify any mortal who meets his gaze. After being beheaded by Perseus, his head is handed over to Athena who fixes it on her aegis. The representation of the gorgoneion will long be used as a protection against the evil eye.
"from the swift jaws of the Gorgons pursuing Perseus rises a garish lament and these cries escape both from their maidens' mouths and from the horrible heads of the serpents associated with them. This high-pitched, inhuman cry is the one that the dead in Hades hear."
