Belerophon was from Korinthos son of Glaukos and grandson of Sissifos. A story of murder he was involved forced him to leave Korinth and went to Proitos king of Tyrintha. Anteia wife of Proitos fall in love with the handsome Bellerophon but since he was an honest man he refuses her love. She felt so angry and accuses him to her husnband that he try to make love to her without her will. Hospitality has a holiness according to Zeus. so Proitos could not hurm him . He was given a letter(for the king of Lycia) and send to Proitos father in law ;king o Lycia . Bellerophon forgot to give the letter to the king so once again he could not be hurmed by anybody . After 10 days he remeber the letter and gave it to the king .Since no one could harm him the king order him to kill Chimera a beast with 3 heads one was goat the second of a lion and third of a dragon -bleaved that no human could possibly kill that beast- The gods helped him this time His first taskwas to tame Pegasus (born from medusa and Posidon) and throwing his arrows from above he manage to kill the beast. He was the send to fight the people of Solumon and later Amazones .After all that the best fighters of Lycia set him an ambush but again he defeted them . The king recognise that Bellerophon must have a devine parantage and offered him his doughter Filonoi for his wife and half of his kingdom. Since he was still ungry with Proitos he went to his palace and kidnapped Anteia .He put her on pegasus but she fall and drowned to the bottom of the sea. Unfortunately Bellerophon he became arrogant and lost the favor of the gods. Zeus send madness to Pegasus and Bellerophon fall down . He was the wondered all alone with a gammy leg untill the end of his life.

I'm guessing you're not a native English-speaker? ;)

Good story, is it the real myth, or is it one you wrote? It sounds like the real myth to me.
