Graiae

Greek - Daughters of Phorcos and Ceto. Sisters of the Gorgons. These sisters, named Deino, Enyo and Pemphredo, lived on the far side of Ocean and shared one eye and one tooth between them. Perseus seized this eye and returned it only when they gave him the directions, or the magic cap, shoes and bag, which he needed to locate the Gorgons. In some accounts, he was said to have thrown the eye away, leaving them blind. In some references, called Graiae, Graeae, Graeae, Grey Women, Grey Women, Graii, Graii, Phorcides, Phorcides or Phorcydes.
