After gaining weapons and armor of the Gods, Perseus traveled to Mount Vesuvius to do battle against the gorgon known as Medusa. After making the gorgon see her own reflection in his shield, turning her to stone, he cut her head off and took the glory for slaying such a beast. In doing so, he doomed the future citizens of Pompeii, even after their death.
Although typically considered to be a brave and courageous man, the Citizens of Pompeii considered Perseus to be a coward who ran away from Medusa and essentially "lucked out" by making the gorgon see her own reflection in his reflective shield. Afterwards, it's implied that Perseus took credit for fighting the fiend.
