Golden Fleece

Greek - The fleece of Chrysomallon. The ram that carried Phrixus to safety had a golden-coloured fleece. When he sacrificed the ram to the gods, Phrixus gave the fleece to the king of Colchis who hung it on a tree guarded by a serpent. It was later the object of the quest undertaken by Jason and the Argonauts who seized it and returned it to Iolcus. In some references, referred to as Golden Fleece.
