Originally published in 1928, this book contains the ancient Greek text of the third book of the Argonautica of Apollonius of Rhodes, in which Medea falls in love with the hero Jason and determines to help him win the Golden Fleece. Gillies supplies a detailed commentary on the story and notes linguistic parallels with Homeric epic and Greek tragedy, in addition to a detailed introduction on the history of the legend and its place in the Hellenistic literary canon. This book will be of value to Classicists and anyone with an interest in ancient Greek literature.
