The Argonautica was an epic Greek poem from the Hellenistic period, telling the story of Jason and the Argonauts, and the quest for the Golden Fleece. They say that the poet, Apollonius of Rhodes, also succeeded Erastothenes as head librarian of the famous Library of Alexandria. That’s what I call a career!
Part 1 is mostly a catalog of the heroes who joined Jason, starting with the least famous guys and least god-descended guys, and working its way up. (Warning: I don’t speak Greek, so my pronunciations of the names are not accurate.)
There’s a great image here of the sons of Boreas: “There, they were making their dusky wings quiver upon their ankles on both sides as they rose — a great wonder to behold, wings that gleamed with golden scales: and round their backs from the top of the head and neck, hither and thither, their dark tresses were being shaken by the wind.”
