In the 8th century B.C., Homer mentions Jason and the Argonauts, assuming that his audience all knew the story. Meet the fathers of the men you read about in The Iliad, as well as Jason and Hercules. Jason sails the mythic first sea-going ship, the "Argo," in search of the Golden Fleece and encounters possibly even more amazing things than Odysseus does in The Odyssey. Jason also meets and marries one of the strongest female characters of later Greek plays, Medea. Apollonius wrote the story down in epic form, that reads like a novel, many centuries after the oral story had established itself. Apollonius was the librarian at the Library in Alexandria.
