Medea

???


The daughter of Aeetes, King of Colchis, she helped Jason steal the golden fleece then fled with him delaying her pursuing father by killing and cutting to pieces her young brother Apsyrtus When she reached Iolcos with her husband Jason, Medea took vengeance on Pelias by first restoring Aeson to youth by boiling him in a cauldron with [p. 66] magic herbs, and then persuaded the daughters of Pelias to submit their father to the same process. But on this occasion the right herbs were omitted and the experiment resulted in Pelias's death. Fleeing from Iolcos they went to Corinth. Because Jason abandoned her there she slew her two children Mermerus and Pheres. Then she flew off on a winged chariot for Athens where she married Aegeus. But Aegeus expelled her when he discovered that she planned to poison his son Theseus. Medea was the subject of a great tragedy by Euripides by the same name. [p.67]
