Greek mythology describes a magnificent kingdom where strange creatures and monsters lead independent lives. Here we have mentioned 10 most terrifying creatures from Greek mythology.
Although the three-headed hellhound is a well-known figure, most people remember him for being kidnapped by Hercules during his last labor.
Chimera had three heads, just like Cerberus, except hers were those of a lion, a goat, and a serpent. The last two were not on her neck, however, it’s difficult to judge how “headlike” they were.
Cerberus most likely got his anguine mane from his snake-woman mother Echidna, who was also the mother of Chimera.
The blood that poured from mutilated Uranus genitalia that his son Cronos had castrated and thrown into the ocean gave birth to the Furies (Three sisters), who were, well, furious beasts.
Although Stheno and Euryale, the other two Gorgon sisters, were equally as “lovely”, Medusa is likely the most well-known.
The poisonous Hydra, an offspring of the Echidna and Typhon, had numerous heads that multiplied and regenerated in a matter of seconds.
This specific prodigy had wings, a lion’s body, and a human head. But not the eagle’s wings; those belonged to her sibling, the eagle that enjoyed feasting on Prometheus’ liver.
He was a flesh-eating monster with a bull’s head and a man’s body. The Minotaur wasn’t actually all that smart.
The sirens, the original femme Fatales, preyed on sex-starved sailors by luring them to shipwreck on their island’s cliffs with their seductive voices.
Typhon was the Father of All Monsters, as you would have imagined. He was essentially everywhere because he was the offspring of Earth (Gaia) and Hell (Tartarus).
