As Perseus was flying over Africa in his return home, he came across Atlas the Titan, a mythical giant, who challenged him. In their fight, Perseus used Medousa's head to turn the Titan into stone. Perseus continued his journey home and, as he passed the kingdom of Ethiopia he saw the beautiful Andromeda, chained to the rocks waiting to be eaten by a sea monster.
