DANAE

 

Danae, the most beautiful of all women in the land, was the only child of King Acrisius of Argo. A priestess of Delphi informed him that his daughter would give birth to a child who would eventually kill him.  Desperate, he built a house of bronze sunk deep underground with part of the roof open to the sky for light and air.  Here he imprisoned her to keep her childless.  However, Zeus visited her in a shower of gold and she bore a child whom she named Perseus.  Now Perseus, in maturity, and on his way home from countless adventures, partook in games organized by the King of Marissa.  A discuss hurled by Perseus suddenly swerved and struck and killed Acrisius, an uninvited guest at the games.  The oracle’s prophecy was fulfilled.
