Argo  (AR-goh)

The ship that bore Jason to Colchis in quest of the Golden Fleece. His shipmates were called the Argonauts in consequence. The vessel was named after its builder, the shipwright Argus. It had a magical talking prow provided by the goddess Athena, carved from a timber from Zeus's sacred grove at Dodona. The Argo barely escaped being smashed by the Clashing Rocks.
