Euryale in Wikipedia Euryale (Greek: Εὐρυάλη, English translation: "far-roaming"), in Greek mythology, was one of the Gorgons, three vicious sisters with brass hands, sharp fangs, and hair of living, venomous snakes. She, like her sisters, was able to turn any creature to stone with her gaze. Her sister Stheno was also immortal, but Medusa, the last of the sisters, was mortal. They were daughters of Phorcys and Ceto. In many stories, Euryale is noted for her bellowing cries, particularly in the tale of Medusa's death at Perseus' hands. Another Euryale, daughter of King Minos of Crete, was the mother of Orion, in Hesiod and other sources; there are other stories of his birth as well. - Wikipedia
