  • An irresistible terror, Scylla lived across a narrow strait from the equally dangerous Charybdis. As with most tales from the past, the exact details differ, but most writers agree Scylla was once a woman and turned into a monster because of jealousy. Gorgeous yet terrifying. That’s how sailors of days’ past spoke of Scylla—a ferocious but irresistible monster of the sea. With snarling heads and tentacles and the face of a goddess, it’s easy to see why this was true. Standing 4 inches tall and 4 ½ inches in diameter, Scylla is similar in size and shape to a very large grapefruit. Her tentacles are ocean-foam blue, while the snarling heads about her waist are grey-black with glowing red eyes. The Greek Homer and the Roman Ovid both mention Scylla in their great works. Her origin is debated, but she was known to reside at the edge of a narrow strait through which sailors needed to pass traveling the Mediterranean Sea. On the other side of the strait lived the equally dangerous Charybdis. The saying Between Scylla and Charybdis would be much the same (although far more frightening) as the saying between a rock and a hard place. The Strait of Messina between Italy and Sicily is a mere two miles wide where it passes the Rock of Scylla. The narrow passage is known for rocks and whirlpools, and it was greatly feared by sailors of old. Even today, the narrow strait commands the respect of seafarers, not least because the legends of the terrifying Scylla live on.
