Definition

Medea is an enchantress and the daughter of King Aeëtes of Colchis (a city on the coast of the Black Sea). In Greek mythology, she is best known for her relationship with the Greek hero Jason, which is famously told in Greek tragedy playwright Euripides' (c. 484-407 BCE) Medea and Apollonius of Rhodes' (c. 295 BCE) epic Argonautica.
