In Greek mythology, Medusa (/mɪˈdjuːzə, -sə/; Μέδουσα "guardian, protectress") also called Gorgo, was one of the three monstrous Gorgons, generally described as winged human females with living venomous snakes in place of hair. Those who gazed into her eyes would turn to stone. Most sources describe her as the daughter of Phorcys and Ceto, although the author Hyginus makes her the daughter of Gorgon and Ceto. In a late version of the Medusa myth, by the Roman poet Ovid (Metamorphoses 4.794–803), Medusa was originally a beautiful maiden, but when Poseidon had sex with her in "Minerva's" (i.e. Athena’s) temple, Athena punished Medusa by transforming her beautiful hair into horrible snakes.

Medusa (Graece Μέδουσα) in mythologia Graeca fuit monstrum femineum, una trium Gorgonum, quae serpentes pro crinibus habuit, cuius vultus aspicientes eam in lapidem commutabat, a Perseo occisa. Medusa erat soror mortalis Sthenonis et Euryales, immortalium Gorgonum. Tres sorores filiae Phorci et Cetus fuisse feruntur; itaque nonnumquam a poetis Phorcides vocantur. Vicipaedia
Ἡ Μέδουσα μία ἦν τῶν Γοργόνων μόνη δὲ αὐτῶν θνητὴ οὖσα. Αἱ τρεῖς Γοργόνες, ὀνόματι Σθενὼ, Εὐρυάλη, Μέδουσα, παρὰ τὸν Ὠκεανὸν κατοικοῦσαι κεφαλὰς μὲν περιεσπειραμένας φολίσι δρακόντων εἶχον, ὀδόντας δὲ μεγάλους ὡς συῶν, καὶ χεῖρας χαλκᾶς, καὶ πτέρυγας χρυσᾶς, δι᾽ ὧν ἐπέτοντο. Τοὺς δὲ ἰδόντας λίθους ἐποίουν. Ἀπολλόδωρος
