What's the connection between a dog, a decapitation and a book of dreams?

Two of the components have a Greek connection. The middle one might be quite hard.

Yes!!

(The mound where the Medusa's head is buried is pretty big actually - it's to the right of the Larissa hill with the castle on it as you look from Nafplio. It has a couple of sanctuaries on it - one of Apollo, and one of Athena. A bit minimal now, but must have been pretty significant when Pausanias was writing. We found him really useful this hols.)

To be honest, it was Richard who recognised old King B!

Now then, where is this:
