In 1300 B.C., a heroic crew who sailed on a ship called the Argo were known as The Argonauts. Based on Greek mythology, the Argonauts embarked upon a quest to retrieve the legendary Golden Fleece from King Aeetes, a seemingly impossible task.
Led by Jason, the Quest of the Fleece is a story mentioned by Homer in his epic poem Odyssey (Book XII). Set before the Trojan War, the expedition of Jason and his crew of Argonauts was meant to be an impossible mission as the Fleece was guarded by a never-sleeping dragon, however the band of heroes set sail on the Argo for the mythical land of Colchis, battled giants and monsters, and managed to successfully retrieve the Golden Fleece and bring it back to Iolcus so that Jason could claim his rightful throne.
