lPerseus was successful in killing Medusa by using the reflection in his shield.
lUpon return to Joppa, Perseus rescued Andromeda (daughter of the vain Cassiopeia) from the monster Cetus.
lPerseus traveled back to Seriphus with his new wife Andromeda.
lPolydectes believed that Perseus would either return home empty-handed or that he would die in the quest. Polydectes did not believe Perseus had slain Medusa when Perseus arrived during a palace banquet.
lPerseus proved so by displaying the head of Medusa and everyone at the banquet was turned to stone.
