9.A.7. Gorgon Has A Name

ARCHAEOLOGICAL MUSEUM OF OLYMPIA

Learned that the term gorgon refers to any of three sisters (Stheno, Euryale and Medusa) who had hair made of living, venomous snakes, that turned those who beheld her appearance to stone. I’m getting less scared of gargoyles and gorgons even how horrible and dreadful they are.

This shield decoration of a Gorgon head with serpents, lion’s legs, and a dragon tail. So, oould be any of those names above.
