Greek - Son of Aetes and Idyia. Brother of Chalciope and Medea. When his sister Medea left Colchis with Jason after he had seized the Golden Fleece, Apsyrtus either went with her in the Argo or followed in one of the ships of the Colchian fleet, depending on who is telling the story. In the former tale, Medea killed him and threw pieces of his body overboard to delay the following ships, which stopped to collect the pieces. In the other story she induced Apsyrtus to come ashore where he was killed by Jason waiting in ambush. Also commonly known as Apsyrtus, Absyrtus, Absyrtus, Apsurtos or Apsurtos.
