How did the story go in the other version?

like in the test version? it was like that persues had to go and slash medusa's head off because it was in some prophecy and she was sleeping when he did it. He brought the head back to Olympus to prove that he wasn't going to kill anyone else, based on what the prophecy said.

and for the Arachne one, athena didn't even battle Arachne. she just turned her into a spider because she was jelouse.

Yeah. That was also a product of Athena's rage. Except this one is respectable. In my opinion.

That was the version in the books, but I think that some people have read different versions of the myth.

I iked Pandora, in a world like today the saying is that be curious is good, but this myth apparently says differently.

As far as being curious...I'm extremely curious. And I think it can be positve or negative. Clearly for Pandora it was mostly negative... but she saved Hope right?...so I suppose it depends on the situation,.
