A legendary figure in Greek mythology, Perseus is best known for slaying the hideous snake-haired Gorgon Medusa, whose looks turned everyone to stone. Being a son of Zeus, he received help from Athena, and from gifts that aided him in completing his quest, which included a shield, a cap that made him invisible, winged sandals, a sickle, and a satchel to carry Medusa's head. On his journey home, Perseus rescued the princess Andromeda, who became his wife, from a sea monster. They were later set in the sky by the gods as immortal constellations.
