Hoping to get rid of Perseus, Polydectes tricked the young man in to a deadly mission to bring head of Medusa.
Athena, Hermes and the Nymphs, offered to help.
Athena gave him a shiny bronze shield and Hermes gave him a sword that could not be bent by the Gorgons' scales.
The Nymphs gave Perseus winged shoes so that he could fly, a cap that made him invisible, and pouch in which to carry the Gorgon's head.
In order to see medusa without turning to stone, Persues located her grotesque face in a reflection on his shiny shield.
He swiftly cut off her head, drooped it into his bag , and fled from Medusa's angry sisters.
