    Poseidon in the Odyssey In the Myth, The Odyssey, Odysseus, [the protagonist] has made his way to the land of cyploses. One cyclops who gives Odysseus much trouble happens to be Poseidon's son, Polyphemus. Polyphemus taunts poor Odysseus and even kills his men, eating them one by one. Odyssesus, without knowing who Polyphemus was, decided to play a trick on Polyphemus. This involved blindingand then beating up Polyphemus from Odysseus andhis remaining men. Odysses' plan went into complete affect. After this Odysseus' journey was a long one andagonizing journey home. Odysseus' finally made it back to Ithica only after all of his men were dead. Poseidon was simply outraged atthis mannamed Odysseus and was determined to make his jounrey a baron one. Poseidon also punished the Phaeacians because they helped aid Odysseus early on in his journey by turning their ship completely into stone. This was a great example of a typical situation involving Poseidon because Poseidon usually is angered or outraged by something that forces the sea to cast winds and earthquakes. However, even though Poseidon was taknig plenty of swift action, Poseidon managed to visit his fellow Ethiopians when he was in a more relaxing mood. It was at these moments that Odysseus escaped Poseidon'd focus and kept along the journey untill he finally made it to Ithica [Grant/Hazel, 289-290].

    ...
    At their wedding Perseus found out that Andromeda was supposed to mary phineus, the Kings brother. Phineus attacked the wedding party with his army, but Perseus became a hero once again by turning the whole army into stones with Medusa's head. They had their first child in Ethiopia, Perses. Much later, Perseus and Andromeda became the king and queen of Tiryns. Here Andromeda conceived Alcaeus, Heleius, Sthenelus, Mestor, Electron, Gorgophone, and Autochthe ("Andromeda, Wife of Perseus").
    Even after having all their children, Perseus and Andromeda remained happily married for the rest of their lives. When they died, the goddess, Athena, put them both up in the sky as constellations, with Andromeda's parents and the sea monster as well ("Andromeda").
