Follow Jason as he attempts to steal the Golden Fleece from King Aeetes and enlists the help of the king’s daughter, Medea. (Part Two of the myth of Jason and the Argonauts)
In Colchis, the hide of a mystical flying ram hangs from the tallest oak, guarded by a dragon who never sleeps. The only way Jason can pry it from King Aeetes’ clutches and win back his promised throne is by facing three perilous tasks— without the help of the Argonauts. Unbeknownst to the king, his daughter Medea was plotting something. Iseult Gillespie shares the myth of the Golden Fleece.
