The Legend of Haragla and Yanni Grives

A myth submitted to the site by Ian Frost

Athens, Ancient Greece

5000 years ago, in Ancient Greece, there was a very peaceful city called Athens. In this city many people gathered in a very huge agora. Farmers were selling fresh vegetables harvested from their farms. Fishmongers were selling different kinds of fish and delicious fruits were displayed in their respective stalls. Different sorts of clothing could be seen in the nearby shops. On the other side of the road, a crowd of people were cheering and trading their respective crops. Two women with baskets on their heads were gossiping with each other and having fun, but little did they know about the danger heading towards them…

One day, the monster Haragla attacked the town and many people were killed. Haragla was a creature with a horse’s body with a flexible neck that was as mighty and powerful as an erupting volcano. He used his snake-armed to bite the people and poison them. He sucked people’s blood with his razor-like teeth and could destroy an army of soldiers in a flash!

It brought a lot of problems to the town and the king of Athens decided to choose one of his bravest soldiers, Yanni Grives, to fight the monster. Yanni was from Mount Olympus and an Athenean soldier. He was muscular, powerful and his movement was as fast as lightning. He was not a son of a god but he was favoured by the Gods. He had a powerful shield and a razor-like spear that could stubb the enemy right into their eyes. Many believed that Yanni Grives could save the people of Athens. So the king sent him to find Haragla.

Yanni began his journey. It took him a long long time to find him. At last, he reached the hollow cave that Haragla was living in. As he stepped in the cave, he spotted Haragla sleeping. He walked closer and closer, but suddenly Haragla was awakening by his footsteps. Yanni tried to hide but he was eyed by the monster. He tried to run and he was shocked to see Haragla. He went closer towards Haragla who tried to attack him, but he was defeated by Yanni. Yanni was victorious and went onto another adventure.
