Why the Pegasus
Once there was a beautiful young maiden who was seduced by the god Poseidon. In their all-consuming passion, this couple -- god and mortal -- had the effrontery to make love in a shrine of the virgin goddess Athena. Needless to say, chaste Athena did not feel honored by their act: she was, in fact, outraged, and, as enraged goddesses are wont, sought revenge for this sacrilege. Wreaking vengeance on a fellow deity such as Poseidon could prove difficult, so Athena looked to the hapless young lady who was, incidentally, both foolish and vain.
