Some links regarding Acephali
- Wikipedia on Acephali
- Muses' Realm on the Acephali from Mythology
- The Encyclopedia Mythica at Pantheon on Acephali
- Wiktionary on Acephali -- this one is a little more helpful in sorting out the various sub-types
- Freedictionary on Acephali -- but hey, it's free, right?
- The Catholic Encyclopedia at New Advent site: very helpful on the ecclesiastical end of things
- Theoi.com really puts it all together nicely--the Acephali and the Blemmyes--they're essentially the same critter, historically, legendarily, but not necessarily for our nefarious purposes...and they add the Sternopthalmoi to the mix. More monsters are always cool, right?
Some links regarding Blemmyes
- Wikipedia on Blemmyes
- Freedictionary has a bit more to offer us on Blemmyes

- Encyclopedia Mythica on Blemmyes. A whole sentence. Wow.
