In Greek mythology, a gorgon is a female monster. Medusa was the most famous gorgon. She was a beautiful, young women with magnificent long, silky hair. One day, while she was in Athena's temple, she fooled around with Poseidon (Neptune,) which of course angered Athena. Athena was so mad she changed Medusa's beautiful hair into hissing serpents and made her into a horrible looking gorgon. She was so horrible that any living thing that looked upon her would turn to stone.
