PERSEUS Steals The Eye From the Graeae by Peter Connolly. "The Graeae (Old Women) were the sisters of the Gorgons, & were blind & toothless, apart from a single eye & a single tooth which they shared among them. Perseus needed information from them for his quest to fetch the head of the Gorgon Medusa, so Perseus stole from them their single eye & tooth forcing them to tell him." - J. R. March's Dictionary of Classical Mythology/user: Aethon
