Medusa & Athena | Athena & Poseidon | Greek Mythology for Kids | Ancient Greek Gods and Goddesses
In later myths (mainly in Ovid) Medusa was the only Gorgon to possess snake locks because they were a punishment from Athena. Accordingly, Ovid relates that the once beautiful mortal was punished by Athena with a hideous appearance and loathsome snakes for hair for having been raped in Athena’s temple by Poseidon.
