The myth of Perseus where he had to slay Medusa and free his mother from an evil king who wanted Perseus dead. The myth of Medusa is about a beautiful girl who was the object of affection of Poseidon. This girlwas Medusa. She and Poseidon had an affair in Athena's temple and turned her hair into snakes as punishment. The Odyssey is a good example of myths.
