GORGON
[noun]
1. Classical Mythology: a terrifying female creature. The name derives from the Greek word gorgós, which means “dreadful.” While descriptions of Gorgons vary across Greek literature, the term commonly refers to any of three sisters who had hair of living, venomous snakes, and a horrifying visage that turned those who beheld it to stone. Traditionally, while two of the Gorgons were immortal, Stheno and Euryale, their sister Medusa was not, and was slain by the mythical hero Perseus.
2. a mean, ugly, or repulsive woman.
