Argo in Greek Mythology

In Greek mythology, Argo was the ship on which Jason and the Argonauts sailed from the land of Iolcos to retrieve the Golden Fleece. She was named after her builder, Argus. Argo was the vessel used by hero Jason to complete its mission. On board were all the leading figures of Ancient Greek Mythology, including Hercules, Theseus, Orpheus, the Dioscuri brothers and Peleus, father of Achilles.
