‘Jason and the Argonauts’ is one of the most enduring tales out of the Greek Pantheon. Jason, an archetypal hero and favorite of the goddess Athena, commissioned a ship from the master shipbuilder, Argo. On this ship, Jason and his crew survived many grand adventures. 

One of the best known—and least tragic—is Jason’s search for the Golden Fleece, a magical relic once belonging to the god Hermes. Geocachers who travel to Cyprus have the chance to channel Jason’s epic quest while searching for The Argo, a cache hidden in a giant sculpture of Jason’s mythical ship, and our Geocache of the Week.
