A map following the three millennia-old voyage of Jason and his fellow Argonauts (a band of fifty heroes, called by the name of their ship - Argo) from the land of Iolcus to Colchis and back across the ancient Mediterranean as told in the Argonautica (an epic poem by Apollonius of Rhodes written in the 3rd century BCE Alexandria, Egypt). It is a classic story of a hero's quest, love, revenge, and betrayal that has everything from a golden wooled ram with wings to dragons, witches, sirens, fratricide, living statues, and murderous nymphs.
