Unfortunately Zeus cursed Calibos with a monstrous appearance for eliminating his entire herd of flying horses, leaving only Pegasus. His mother Thetis cursed Joppa to suffer as her son has suffered. Andromeda remained without husband and her soul was compelled by her disguised fiance,to a daily riddle,to task any men bold enough to try to take her hand in marriage. Perseus manages to solve the riddle and defeat Calibos in single combat.
