Mythology

Cassiopeia is the very beautiful queen of Ethiopia. She claimed to be more beautiful than the Nerieds. As punishment, Cassiopeia's daughter,Andromea was to be sacrificed to the sea monster, Cetus. Andromea was saved by Perseus. Cassiopeia plotted with Agenor, Andromea's ex-fiance, to kill Perseus. Perseus used Medusa's head to turn Cassiopeia, Agenor, and Agenor's men to stone. The constellations of Cassiopeia and Cetus are facing each others feet so they cannot talk to each other.
