Thank you for all your inventive, exciting, frightening and downright disturbing Greek-style monsters! I really enjoyed them all, and hope you will enjoy exploring them too in this online gallery.
As well as all these great portraits, we have some monsters who were described instead of drawn.

The feet of the Hellagonatanies are often clawed and rough or scaly. “
