Medusa is a monster from Greek mythology. If she looks at somebody, she turns them to stone.

Medusa was one of the three "gorgons" their job was to turn people into stone.

The name 'Medusa' would be appropriate for a type of cement, because Medusa, in Greek mythology, had the ability to turn people into stone if they looked her in the eyes. I suppose that stone is similar to cement, making it an appropriate name.

Being as profoundly cursed as Medusa was I think that it is little wonder that she became as vicious as she finally was.

The lesson being taught in medusa is that you can't judge a book by its cover and the second answer is some people will do just about anything to get what they want!!!!!!

No. Medusa was originally a sea nymph before being cursed by Athena because she was with Poseidon in Athena's temple.

Being able to turn men to stone.

Yes she did. She was jealous of Medusa for being almost as pretty as her. So she put a curse on Medusa so that she would have snakes on her head. That way, all the men would be afraid to look at Medusa, and so that they would pay more attention to Aphrodite.

Athens did not kill Medusa, Athens is a city in Greece. Medusa was killed by the hero 'Perseus' with the help of Athena and his brother Hermes. He killed Medusa by using a shield to see her reflection. This was because staring at Medusa would lead to being paralyzed in stone. He cut her head off and proceeded to use her as a weapon.

Poseidon wanted to have carnal relations with Medusa but Medusa was a priestess in the temple of Athena, a maiden god. As such, all of her priestess were also expected to be maidens. Poseidon disregarded this and raped Medusa within the temple walls. Athena was infuriated but could not take her vengeance on Poseidon so instead she turned Medusa into a gorgon. Medusa was essentially punished for being raped.

Medusa was a follower of the virgin goddess Athena, and her workers were to remain virgins. However, Medusa, being quite beautiful, was raped by the god of the sea Poseidonin the temple of Athena. Poseidon was not blamed, however, Medusa was, and because of that, Athena turned her and her sisters into Gorgons

Athena cursed medusa because Medusa was a priestess at Athenas temple. Being a priestess for athena includes many things but the biggest one was remaining a virgin. However, medusa was veery beautiful and Posiden fell in love with her and wanted to have sex with her. She refused but he wouldn't take no for an answer and he raped her. Athena heard that Medusa was no longer a virgin and cursed her.

Medusa was famous for sleeping with Poseidon in Athena's temple, being punished by having her hair turned into snakes, and turning people into stone. She was also famous for being killed by the hero Perseus.

Medusa the Gorgon was not real. She was never in a city, even in the myth, so no current city can lay claim to being hers.

Aside from being mythological, nothing. Zeus is the personification of the sky. As a consort of Poseidon, Medusa represented the dangers of the uncharted seas.

Medusa was not cursed by Aphrodite. She was cursed by Athena. Medusa, in Ovid's telling of the tale, was a beautiful young woman, possibly a priestess of Athena. Poseidon was so enraptured by her beauty that he pursued her and attempted to bed her. When Medusa refused, as Athena was a virgin goddess and expected her followers to be as well, Poseidon raped her on the floor of Athena's temple. As a result of the rape, Medusa became pregnant. Being the notorious misogynists that they are, the Greeks felt being raped was a punishable offense, and as such Athena cursed Medusa and exiled her to live with the other Gorgons.

well, if you think being turned into stone is fun then yes

Lovely, if Poseidon is any judge.

Also, Medusa was pregnant before Athena changed her. So when Perseus chopped off the neck of Medusa, Pegasus and Crysaor escaped from the body as Poseidon's and Medusa's children. I feel sorry for Medusa, being raped!
