Medusa was a ravishingly beautiful maiden, but because Poseidon had raped her in Athena’s temple, enraged Athena transformed Medusa’s hair to serpents and made her face so terrible to behold that the mere sight of it would turn onlookers to stone. But Medusa’s “punishment” was not a punishment at all but rather a gift from the goddess. Athena could not punish Poseidon for what he'd done so she made sure Medusa would never be at the mercy of a man again.
