“The fresh plants, still living inside, and absorbent,
respond to the influence of the Gorgon’s head,
and harden at its touch, acquiring a new rigidity in branches and fronds.
And the ocean nymphs try out this wonder on more plants,
and are delighted that the same thing happens at its touch,
and repeat it by scattering the seeds from the plants through the waves.”

Ovide, Metamorphoses, book IV
