Hippodameia  (hip-uh-da-MYE-uh)

Maiden whom King Polydectes claimed he was going to marry, as a ruse to disguise his intentions toward Perseus's mother Danae. Perseus was asked to provide a gift for the wedding, and lacking any suitable present found himself promising to bring Polydectes the head of the Gorgon Medusa.
Perseus takes issue with Polydectes' intentions. (zoom)
