Stentho

Stheno

Stheno was the eldest of the three Gorgon sisters, vicious female monsters with brass hands, sharp fangs and hair of living venomous snakes.

Greek Mythology

Stheno was born, along with her two sisters, to Phorcys and Keto, deities of the sea, in caverns beneath Mount Olympus, the home of the Olympians. Stheno and her sisters were not born Gorgons. Poseidon had raped Medusa in the temple of Athena, which made Athena jealous because she was a virgin goddess. Athena turned Medousa into a Gorgon and Stheno and Euryale, who were with Medousa, also got transformed into Gorgons.

Relationships

Trivia

  • Unlike Medousa, Stheno (and Euryale) were not able to turn people to stone when she looked at them.
  • Stheno was known to be the most murderous of the Gorgon sisters, having killed more men then both of her sisters combined.
