A Conversation for Greek Myths - Perseus

Hi Mina,
Spotted one small typo in your excellent entry.

Second paragraph you have ' Th eking '

I think everyone knows the rehashed story of Perseus from the Clash of the Titans film, so it's nice to see the proper story laid out.

It contradicts a few facts in the other article on greek mythology that's currently in peer review. Maily about Medusa's parentage, but my knowledge on the matter isn't ample enough to know which is correct.

I was a little surprised by the last few paragraphs about the discus and atlas and pegasus rising from medusas blood. I have never heard any of these stories before. I'm not questioning your research, but have you verified these stories?

Well done for a well written and comprehensive article Mina.
