The Geography of the Argonauts' Journey
The Argonauts voyage around and beyond the ancient Greek world was the subject of geographic speculation as far back as records exist. Poets and historians debated the exact route, and no two agreed fully. Herodorus believed the Argonauts simply traveled along the coast of Asia Minor and returned the same way. Apollonius had them travel through the Danube and around Italy, while the Orphic Argonautica sent them as far afield as Ireland. This slideshow presents images of some of the locations associated with the many routes of the Argonauts.
