10. Polydectes is turned to stone

Postquam Perseus ad insulam navem appulit, se ad locum contulit ubi mater olim habitaverat, sed domum invenit vacuam et omnino desertam.

Tres dies per totam insulam matrem quaerebat; tandem quarto die ad templum Dianae pervenit.

Huc Danae refugerat, quod Polydectem timebat.

Perseus ubi haec cognovit, ira magna commotus est; ad regiam Polydectis sine mora contendit, et ubi eo venit, statim in atrium inrupit.

Polydectes magno timore adfectus est et fugere volebat.

Dum tamen ille fugit, Perseus caput Medusae monstravit; ille autem simul atque hoc vidit, in saxum versus est.
