  • Jason was sent on a journey to retrieve the very golden fleece phrixus had offered to the king of colchis so long ago.  Jason and his argonauts came to the land of Bebryces, of which the king of the land, a son of poseidon, intended to box strangers who came to the land. The king later died in a boxing match with Polydeuces
  • Having finally arrived at Colchis, King Aetes set forth a number of impossible tasks for jason in order to receive the golden fleece he so desired.
