Acrisius, King of Argos received a dreadful oracle from Delphi. According to the priestess of Delphi, he will not have a son but a grandson from whose hands he will be killed. Frightened, King Acrisius hid his only daughter Danae from the sight of all men. Danae was locked up inside a house of bronze sunk underground. Zeus entered into the underground chamber in the form of the shower of gold through the roof partly opened. He appeared in front of Danae and in an instant Danae conceived a baby. Later, Danae had given birth to a boy named Perseus. She kept her baby a secret from her own father. But days have come and King Acrisius learned about her secret. The King ordered his people to have a chest built for Danae and child Perseus. Danae and her child were put inside the chest and sent adrift the sea. It bobbed in the waves until it reached the Island of Seraphos where a fisherman named Dictys noticed the chest and took it. When he opened, he saw Danae and Perseus. The kind Dictys let them in their house to live together with his wife. Dictys’ brother, King Polydectes was captivated with Danae’s beauty and married her. Polydectes felt jealous over the love that Danae was giving to Perseus. To get rid of Perseus, Polydectes sent him to a dangerous adventure that put his life in peril. The mission was to kill Medusa, one of the three Gorgons. She has snaky hair and metal-scaled skin. Looking straight in Medusa’s eye can turn mortals into stone. Despite the danger, Perseus agreed to embark on the adventure in order to get his own name a glory. Hermes gave him a sword. He was also given a shield by Athena. Hermes added that Perseus needed also the winged sandals, the helmet of invisibility, and the magic wallet.
