Akhilleus Picture


AKHEILOS was a shark-shaped Sea-Demon.
Once a beautiful boy, he was transformed into a shark as punishment for boasting that he was fairer than the goddess Aphrodite.
It is said that there was born also a son of Zeus and the Lamia called Akhilleus; he was of an irresistable beauty and like others was the object of a competition, he carried it then to the judgement of Pan. Aphrodite was irritated and placed in the heart of Pan the love of Ekho and she made him [Akhilleus] become as ugly and unattractive as he had been beautiful
