Storyboard Text

  •                    Lost Sandal
  • Oracle's Prophecy
  • You must go on a quest for the golden fleece.
  • Godly Support
  • I will sail with the support of the gods!
  • Jason loses a sandal when on his journey to Lolkos. This is told in the quote "The usurper Pelias had been told by an oracle that he would die at the hands of kinsmen, and that he should beware of anyone whom he saw shod with only a single sandal" (Hamilton 123)
  • The Argo Sets Sail
  • Because of an oracle's prophecy to beware a stranger with one sandal, Pelias sends Jason on a quest for the golden fleece. This is shown in the quote "So shall it be. But one thing must first be done. The dead Phrixus bids us bring back the Golden Fleece and thus bring back his spirit to his home. The oracle has spoken." (Hamilton 124)
  • Hercules Stays Behind
  • We're missing one!
  • Although the journey would be very long, Jason learns that he will have support from the gods. He sails in an argo that is made from the timber of Zeus' sacred tree. This is shown in the quote "No story proved this fact better than the account of what the heroes suffered who sailed in the ship Argo" (Hamilton 123)
  • Medea Falls in Love
  • The Argo sets sail for Colchis. Although it would be a tough journey, they finally set sail for Colchis. This is shown in the quote "No story proved this fact better than the account of what the heroes suffered who sailed in the ship Argo to find the Golden Fleece." (Hamilton 123)
  • The Argo makes several stops, one of which Hercules stays behind to find the missing Hylas. This is told in the quote "Soon after they left Lemnos the Argonauts lost Hercules from the company. A lad named Hyas, his armor-bearer, very dear to him." (Hamilton 125)
  • The Argo arrives in Colchis and there are many tasks Jason must perform. Aphrodite however, sends Eros to shoot Medea and cause her to fall in love with Jason. This is shown in the quote "It seemed the only plan that ffered any hope and they urged the prince to go back and try to win Medea over." (Hamilton 129-130)
