GODS & MYTHS
Argonauts, Jason and Medea
Jason forces the fire-breathing oxen to plough the field
The soldiers born from the dragon's teeth fight each other
Jason travels and arrives at the island where the golden ram lives
Jason sows the teeth of the dragon onto the field
Jason flays the golden ram
From her tower, Medea watches Jason's deeds
