Abstract

The story of Jason and the men of the ship Argo is one of the most famous legends in Greek literature. Ironically, Jason has never been immortalized in the heavens, although three of the Argonauts have. His ship was also given a place in the sky and was a single constellation in Ptolemy’s list of 48 groupings, though the Argo has since been broken into four separate constellations.
