Queen of the Dead 160

Description

In the myths there were no consequences for Poseidon from what I know. Rape was of course seen as a crime in ancient Greece, but ancient definitions of rape and standards of consent differed from our own. "With respect to females, a criminal violation was not legally defined by the rape victim’s lack of consent, but by the lack of consent of her father, husband, or guardian" (Greek and Roman Sexualities by Jennifer Larson). The penalty of rape was to pay a fine depending on the social status of the victim.
