DESCRIPTION

Jason recovers the Golden Fleece from a sacred tree in the grove of Ares. The head of the fleece's guardian Dragon-Serpent darts towards the hero. The goddess Athena, wearing a helm and the aegis-cloak, oversees the endeavour. Behind her stands an Argonaut and the prow of the ship Argo.
