The Scylla of Greece

In Greek mythology, Scylla was a sea-monster with six very hungry beast heads, who haunted the rocks of a narrow strait opposite the whirlpool of Charybdis. Scylla first appeared in Homer’s Odyssey, when Odysseus and his crew’s adventures lead them to an encounter with her and Charybdis.
