By Apollonius Of Rhodes


Jason and the Argonauts is the only surviving full account of Jason's voyage on the Argo in quest of the Golden Fleece, aided by the sorceress princess Medea. Written in the Hellenistic period, this epic story of one of the most beloved heroes of Greek mythology, with its combination of the fantastical and the real, winged heroes and a magical vessel that speaks, was hugely influential on later literature, especially the Roman poetry of Virgil and Ovid.
