What does Perseus repesent?

Perseus did not represent anything. He was one of various heroic legendary figures of Greek mythology. His name and the name of other character in the legend was used to name some constellations (Cassiopeia, Andromeda and Pegasus). Perseus was sent by the king of the island of Serifos to kill and bring the head of Medusa, the only mortal Gorgon (dreadful female creatures). Medusa's eyes turned people into stone. The king sent Perseus on this mission to get rid of Perseus. However, with the help of the gods Zeus, Hermes and Athena, he managed to kill Medusa. Perseus travelled to Mauritania and then to Aethiopia. Perseus rescued Andromeda, the daughter of king and Queen Cassiopeia from a Cetus, a sea serpent who destroyed man and beast. To accomplish this he used winged sandals which Hermes had given him. In Renaissance version of the legend Perseus, instead, flew riding Pegasus, a winged horse .Perseus then married Andromeda. Perseus was the first legendary hero who defeated monsters. He was also the legendary founder of the Greek city of Mycenae.
