In Greek mythology Medusa was a Gorgon, a chthonic female monster & a daughter of Phorcys & Ceto. In a late version of the Medusa myth, related by the Roman poet Ovid, Medusa was originally a beautiful maiden, “the jealous aspiration of many suitors” & priestess in Athena’s temple. But because Poseidon raped her in Athena’s temple, the enraged Athena transformed Medusa’s beautiful hair to serpents & made her face so terrible to behold that the mere sight of it would turn men to stone. #myth
