Medea, Soreress Princess of Colchis, securer of the golden fleece. Her very name is a byword for infamy. Legend had it that she murdered her own children for revenge. But love in Ancient Greece was often a dangerous game, and legends are not always what they seem. Medea, devoted wife of Jason, was also a loving mother, a loyal friend to Herakles and a brave adventurer with the Argonoughts. A woman both betrayer and betrayed, the real story of Medea is strange, sensual and heroic.
