Ayia Napa Sea Monster. Location: Cyprus. Information: There have been no reports of it causing any harm, although it has been reported at times to rip and drag away fishing nets. It is known by the local fishermen as "To Filiko Teras", which translates as "The Friendly Monster". Many believers like to link it with the common mythical sea monster of Greek mythology called Scylla, which is depicted in the mosaics that remain in the House of Dionysus, a Roman villa from the 3rd century AD.
