After Pyrtius, the son of Zeus, was born, his maternal grandfather, Agrisius, the king, put Pyrtius and his mother Danar in a box and threw it into the sea. Because an oracle told the king that his grandson would take his throne and murder his life. Zeus, bless the mother and son who were drifting in the sea, guided the box through the wind and waves, and finally the box drifted all the way to Serifus, the island, near the coast. Polydectes, who was fishing, saw a wooden box floating in the water, and hurriedly pulled it up to the shore. Polydectes, married Danar, and took care of Pyrtheus.

Piltius, ambitious as an adult, was determined to chop off the ugly head of the banshee Medusa.

From the fairy, Pilsius, he got three treasures. He put on his god bag, his shoes, and his dog-skin helmet. In this way, he could fly as he wanted, seeing who he wanted to see, and no one else could see him. In addition, he got a bronze shield from Hermes. He armed himself with these objects and flew over to the sea. Pilsius, found Medusa sleeping. Her head was covered with scales, no hair, and she had a poisonous snake coiled over her head, and anyone who saw her would immediately turn to stone. Pilsius, know a secret. He turned his face away, then used his bright shield as a mirror, and saw Medusa clearly. Athena showed him how to do it again, so he successfully cut off the banshee's head.

Pirsius, carefully stuffing Medusa's head into the sack on his back, left there. He flew all the way to the coast of Ethiopia, where King Cephas ruled. Pirsius saw a young girl tied up on a rock towering in the middle of the sea. The sea breeze ruffled her hair, and the girl burst into tears. Pirsius, moved by her young beauty. It turned out that the god of the sea sent a monster and devoured everything on the land. The oracle declared: If the country is to be saved, the king's daughter Andromeda must be thrown to the monster to feed. The people immediately made a fuss, and they demanded to sacrifice the princess to save the country. In desperation, the king had no choice but to order her to be locked here.

As soon as the girl finished speaking, the monstrous waves rolled in. A monster appeared in the sea, and her broad chest covered the whole water. Pyrsius, said to the king, "If the girl is free and willing to choose a mate, she will definitely take a fancy to me first. She looks like this now, and I want to formally propose to her, and I am willing to go and rescue her. Are you willing to accept my terms?" The princess' parents were glad to meet the savior, and nodded again and again, not only promising to betroth their daughter to him, but also to give him the kingdom as a dowry.

As he spoke, the monster had already swam over. When the young man saw this, he kicked up with his foot and rose into the air. The monster was killed in three or two strokes. Pyrtheus, flying to the coast, rescued the girl. He was treated grandly and became a distinguished guest and son-in-law at the court.

Just as the wedding was being held joyfully, there was a sudden commotion in the front hall of the palace, and a dull roar came from the well. It turned out that King Cepheus, the younger brother of Phineus, had broken in with a group of warriors. He had pursued Andromeda before, but abandoned her when she was in danger. Now he reiterated his request.

In his madness, he threw his spear at Pilsius with all his might. But his eyesight was poor, and the spear plunged into the mat at once. Pilsius, with his back to a large pillar, struggled to stop them from advancing, killing one enemy after another. Later, seeing that his courage alone was no longer effective, he decided to make a last move. He took Medusa's head out of the sack and stretched it out towards his approaching opponent. In this way, he turned the last group of people into stiff stones. Only then did Phineus regret that he should not be so vexatious and provoke trouble.

Finus dodged left and right, not wanting to see the terrifying head, but he finally didn't escape. Immediately, Finus turned into stone with a terrifying expression, standing there with his hands drooping, completely like a lowly slave.

Pisius was finally able to return home with his young wife Andromeda. Long and happy days awaited him. But he still could not avoid the disaster that brought on his grandfather Agrisius. My grandfather, fearing the oracle, quietly fled out of the country and went to the king of Piras and Qi. At that time, a competition was being held here. Pisius, very happy to see it, grabbed a piece of iron and threw it out, but unfortunately just hit his grandfather hard. Soon he knew who he had killed. He mourned the dead deeply, buried him outside the city, and exchanged the kingdom he inherited. From then on, the god of fate no longer envied him.
