Mythology Monday: The Argonauts meet the Amazons


After the Argonauts got through the clashing rocks, they entered the Black Sea and discovered the island Thynias. As they approached the island, they saw Apollo flying overhead in his sun chariot to visit a mythical people called the Hyperboreans, descendants of Boreas’ daughter, Khione. The island shook when he passed so the argonauts decided to build Apollo an altar and shrine, just to avoid offending other gods. Based on every other Greek myth I’ve ever read, that was a super good call.

Their next stop was the river Acheron, which flows into Hades and here they met King Lycus. The king was friendly and offered to let them rest as his place, but tragedy struck when their prophet was killed by a wild boar, and a minor Argonaut is killed by an illness. They build a memorial and with heavy heart they sailed on.

As they sailed away from the Acheron, they notice Sthenelus, a deceased comrade of Hercules who was left behind after Hercules completed his labor to steal Hippolytas’ girdle, and three living humans who were stranded at the island of Sinope. The Argonauts help the ghost Sthenelus find peace and welcome the three living guys on board. To collect them, the Argonauts have to make a brief stop on an island of Amazon influence, but skedaddled before the women could organize and attack them.

That’s right, the Amazon’s were so epic the Argonauts ran away.

  1. I’ve always used a pair of regular oven mitts or a dish towel
    to remove the hot baked items from my oven. Further,
    these ovens are designed in all sizes and forms to suit the set up of modern kitchens.
    If it is not, remove the large flat stone and build up your oven walls some more
    and try again.

  2. Vacuum cleaners with bags need to be replaced frequently.
    As can be seen from the above applications, cleaners of this type have a wide variety of uses.
    A sternum clip also assists in giving you more support.

  3. Children loved it and more than 2 million kids took it
    home, when it was republished as a children’s book in 1946 Rudolph became a household
    name. As you can see, decorating for Xmas does not have to empty your wallet.
    Planning ahead and taking time to organize your outdoor decorations will help the
    installation process go perfectly allowing
    you more time to really enjoy your decorations instead of
    just battling to get them up.

  4. Kopi may be the Indonesian word for coffee, and Luwak, as I’ve already said will be the animal that eats the raw fleshy bean and excretes
    solid seed of the bean. The only downside towards the brewbot as well as the t-discs would be the fact it’s single serve.
    We as buyers also offers responsibility in taking
    good care from the things we buy if we want them to last
    a long time.
