Dead Roman transformed: Greek hero to her rescue (9)


I believe the answer is:


'greek hero to her rescue' is the definition.
(Andromeda was rescued by Perseus)

'dead roman transformed' is the wordplay.
'transformed' indicates anagramming the letters.
'deadroman' anagrammed gives 'ANDROMEDA'.

(Other definitions for andromeda that I've seen before include "Legendary beauty" , "Constellation; daughter of Cassiopeia" , "princess barely chained to rock" , "Greek maid seen in Milan" , "Pattern of stars" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
