Medusa's Lair is the hiding place of the Gorgon Medusa, an adversary that Perseus must defeat. The place is dark and mainly consists of ancient ruins, statues of fallen soldiers who, were turned to stone by the Gorgon's eyes and various pits of lava. The dark, horrific characteristics of the lair allows Medusa to set traps and fire deadly arrows to their preys. Perseus was the only man who was ever capable of killing and escaping from Medusa's Lair. In various literature, the lair is sometimes guarded by a three-headed dog named Cerberus. The Lair is a ruined temple built in the Underworld on a ledge overlooking the River Styx. Women are forbidden to enter the temple, as Athena wished to take vengeance on men.
