Nikos Deja Vu - Medea, Jason and the Golden Fleece




Medea is a woman in Greek mythology. She was the daughter of King Aeëtes of Colchis and later wife to the hero Jason. Jason fled after obtaining the golden fleece, taking Medea with him.
Medea bore Jason two children before Jason forsook her in order to marry the daughter of Creon, the king of Corinth. Medea got revenge for Jason's desertion by killing the new bride with a poisoned robe and crown which burned the flesh from her body; King Creon died as well when he tried to embrace his dying daughter. Medea fled Corinth in a chariot, drawn by winged dragons, which belonged to her grandfather Helios. She took with her the bodies of her two children, whom she had murdered in order to give Jason further pain.
