Mythical creatures and monsters


In Greek mythology, Chrysaor is a giant who was born from the body of the dead Medusa, his mother. His father was Poseidon (god of the seas).

According to other sources, Chrysaor was the son of Galukos (the sea god).

His brother was named Pegasus and both may have been born after their mother died. Medusa was killed by Perseus.

Chrysaor took Kallirhoe as his wife. Together they fathered Echinda (half woman and half serpent) and the giant Geryon (he had three bodies).
