Jason and the Golden Fleece

Jason and the Golden Fleece

The myth goes that Aeetes would give the golden fleece to Jason if he completed several, tasks in one day.

Even after these tasks were completed, Aeetes didn’t giveJason the Golden Fleece.

Instead, he plotted the death of Jason and the Argonauts with the rest of the Colchis men.

Medea, who was in love with Jason. hearing about this plan, went to Jason and the Argonauts, then she took them to the sacred oak tree that had the Golden Fleece hanging from it.

This tree was guarded by a dragon that didn’t sleep, but with the help of her spells and drugs, Medea was able to make the dragon fall asleep so Jason could grab the Golden Fleece and return it to the ship.
