jason mythology

Golden Fleece, in Greek mythology, golden wool of a sacred winged ram. King Pelias sent his nephew Jason to retrieve the fleece from its guarded grove to determine whether Jason was worthy of the throne. Before succeeding, Jason had to sow the teeth of a dragon and fight the fierce men who grew from these seeds.
