of the Myth of
the Golden Fleece

Then Perseus came across Ichios,
who had been turned into stone. He
spoke to his companions and said,
"Beware of the Medusa. He who looks
into their eyes is doomed to the same fate
as that which befell poor Ichios and
will never more set eyes on Seriphos."
"Must we go blindfolded?" asked
Ymelops. "Take up your bronze
shields and polish them until they flash
in the sun," answered Perseus. "Fill
your hearts with courage. May
Artemis guide us as though we were an
arrow from her quiver."

But Ymelops was not satisfied. "Why
do that, Perseus? Is three inches of
sharpened metal not enough to destroy
these accursed creatures?" Then
Perseus drew his sword, which shone
and glittered in the sun, and with it he
dazzled Ymelops. "Now what can you
see?" The companions of Zeus' son
laughed. "Let us set to work, so that
our shields may shine like mirrors."
