Galatea and Acis



Acis, a minor river god, loved the nymph Galatea. However, the cyclopes Polyphemus (some say the same one who terrorized Odysseus) also loved the girl. There really was no competition: Acis was young and handsome, Polyphemus large and ugly.

Acis and Galatea carried on a secret love affair, but one day Polyphemus heard Acis singing a love song for her and hurled huge rocks at the two.

Galatea transformed him into a river and the stones which Polyphemus threw became the Cyclopian Rocks in Sicily.
