fell in love with him instead.
|Circe poisoning the pool where Scylla bath....|
tried to win Glaucus heart with her most passionate and loving words, telling him to scorn Scylla and stay with her. But he replied that trees would grow on the ocean floor and seaweed would grow on the highest mountain before he would stop loving Scylla. In her anger, Circe
poisoned the pool where Scylla bathed, transforming her into a terrible monster with twelve feet and six heads. Scylla fled to a cave on top of a dangerous cliff and attacked any sailors that came within her reach.
