"...She, itís said,
Was violated in Minervaís shrine
By Oceanís Lord. Joveís daughter turned away
And covered with her shield her virgin eyes,
And then for fitting punishment transformed
The Gorgonís lovely hair to loathsome snakes.
Minerva still, to strike her foes with dread,
Upon her breastplate wears the snakes she madeÖ" -Ovid
