The Nymphai in Perseus and Medusa

These supernatural ladies possess some key equipment that Perseus would really like to use to defeat the Gorgon Medusa: Hermes' winged sandals, Hades' helmet of invisibility, and the kibisis. Perseus learns the secret location of the Nymphai from the Graeae, and the Nymphai are kind enough to let the young hero borrow the magical gear.
