The Tale of Poseidon, Medusa and Poseidon is a myth that tells the story of Poseidon. Before Medusa, Medusa was beautiful and could turn stone people into snakes. Poseidon came across Medusa while looking for new love. Although she made a promise of chastity to Poseidon, it didn’t stop him from being interested in her. He tried to “woo” her, but it didn’t work. So he became angry and tried to take her by force. She ran to Athens’ temple, wrapped herself with gold and pleaded for help. Poseidon took her and allowed her to go. Athens learned that Medusa was being punished by him and transformed her into a serpent-haired creature with golden wings. Everyone who saw her became stone. Two children were born to her by Poseidon: a horse named Pegasus as well as a man of giant stature, named Chrysaor.
