An enormous serpent from Thebes in ancient Greek myth. A hero called Cadmus came to Thebes to fetch some water. When he heard about the sinister beast that terrorized the city he set out to destroy it. When the Dragon was slain, the goddess Athena told Cadmus to use the creature’s teeth and sow them as seeds. When he did this, warriors called the Spartoi sprouted from the ground. Five of these beings became the Lords of Thebes. Ares the god of war took revenge for the death of the Dragon and he turned Cadmus and his wife into serpents.
