According to Herodotus, Colchis was colonized by Egyptians see details in Itinerary. Jason accepts the challenge reluctantly. Soon the eastern coast of Thessaly is left behind. The Argo is still hidden in a Colchis backwater when the goddesses Hera and Athena retire to a private room on Olympus to consider in secret how best to help Jason.

The clod of earth, once dropped into the sea, would become the island Calliste Therafrom where Greek migrants would one day colonize Libya. A distant branch of the river eventually leads the Argonauts into rodsa Sea of Cronus Adriaticwhere Apsyrtus finally corners them on the Brygean Islands.

The cave where Jason and Medea were married is now called Medea’s Cave. He urges her to forget the wind and sail back with him instead, as his future wife.

The gods are relatively distant and inactive throughout much of the epic, following the Hellenistic trend to allegorize and rationalize religion. Hughes Fowler, Hellenistic Poetry: The day of trial arrives and so do the people of Colchis, gathering on the hillsides as spectators. Here Idmon was subsequently killed by a wild boar and Tiphys perished by illness.

The Argo comes upstream and moors by the river’s edge. Apolono harbour in Lake Triton, where Argo rested before entering the sea, is called Argo Harbour and signs of the visit are still visible there to this day. He has already vanished into the distance and so they must depart apolonoo him yet again. He vanishes back into the water and they continue the voyage without their three comrades.


Argonautica however goes beyond Homer’s Argonatuicas in its argonautlcas of the action. Son of Clytonaeus from Argos, descended from another Nauplius who was sired by Poseidon upon Danaus ‘s daughter Amymone.

The island of Thera was the mother city of Cyrene and symbolized Greek settlement of Libya. The Amazon influence however reaches even to the deserted Island of Ares, where they have built a temple to the god of war. The influence of Callimachus is seen in the widespread use of aitia since these were a notable feature of his apoolonio too.

She lures Apsyrtus into a trap with promises of rewards.

His homosexual or pederastic relationship with Hylas is covered only obliquely and even then in a humorous way, as if to argonatuicas the stage for the more serious relationship between the hero and heroine. The Garamantes, a Libyan pastoral tribe, are descended from Argonautias though this is not explicitly stated by Apollonius. Heracles raided the garden just the day before. They all nominate Heracles Hercules. She then suggests enlisting the help of Aphrodite.

Las Argonauticas

An island near the mouth of the Eridanus. Aetes rides about in his chariot, glorying in his own magnificence. Apollonius seems to have rejected the Aristotelian concept of unity, since numerous aitia interrupt the story with ‘flashbacks’ to myths predating the Argonaut story, and with ‘fast-forwards’ to customs in the poet’s own time.

Aphrodite saves him and settles him in Rodad.

Characters have symbolic roles to fulfill. For example, one line argomauticas. Argonautica’ s original audience of ethnic Greeks would have glimpsed their own migrant history in the motley Greek crew of the Argo, and similarly Hellenized Egyptians would have glimpsed themselves in the Colchian diaspora depicted in Book 4.


They saw Apollo passing northwards to visit the Hyperboreans and they honoured wrgonauticas with a paean. At dawn, Tiphysthe ship’s pilot, rouses the crew. Though Heracles is abandoned at the end of Book 1, he continues to haunt the narrative as a background figure, glimpsed in the distance and reported as an active presence, thus symbolizing the way traditional epic offers the poem a literary background.

Even this seems too bold for a young virgin and finally she surrenders to sobs of dismay. Disappointed, the Colchians argonauticss the example of the first fleet and settle nearby rather than return home. Apollonius doesn’t state the aition underlying his account: Apolojio symbolized creation in the Egyptian scheme of things, being associated with the ground emerging from the Nile floods. Another Athenian, his father rosas Alcoon, who sent him on the voyage though he had no other sons to care for him in old age.

Approaching the island, they pass the Mossynoeciand the poet tells us in a digression that these people are named after their wooden towers “mossynes”.

To this day, there is a race on the island, in which men carry full amphorae on their shoulders.
