He mentions the shrine to Perseus that stood on the left-hand side of the road from Mycenae to Argos, and also a sacred fountain at Mycenae called Persea. As the women passed the eye from one to another, Perseus snatched it from them, holding it for ransom in return for the location of the nymphs. Fearful for his future, but unwilling to provoke the wrath of the gods by killing the offspring of Zeus and his daughter, Acrisius cast the two into the sea in a wooden chest. The other two Gorgons pursued Perseus,  but, wearing his helm of darkness, he escaped. Then, accused by Acrisius of lying about having slain Medusa, Perseus proves himself by showing Acrisius the Gorgon's head, thus fulfilling the prophecy. The fulfillment of the oracle was told several ways, each incorporating the mythic theme of exile. This part of the series plays with the theme of the reflected gaze, as Perseus has Andromeda look at the Gorgon's head, but only as reflected in the well.

From here he proceeded to visit Atlas , king of Mauretania , who had refused him hospitality; in revenge Perseus turned him to stone. Zeus gave him an adamantine sword a Harpe and Hades' helm of darkness to hide. Perseus then proceeded to the Gorgons' cave. The origin of perth- is more obscure. Apart from these more historical references, the only accounts of him are from folk-etymology: This is an unusual variant on the story of such a prophecy, as Acrisius' actions did not, in this variant, cause his death. Perseus slew the monster and, setting her free, claimed her in marriage. The oracle of Ammon announced that no relief would be found until the king exposed his daughter Andromeda to the monster, and so she was fastened naked to a rock on the shore.
