Jason's ship and the Clashing Rocks. Scene from Wrath of the Gods.

Clashing Rocks. Twin crags that menaced Jason and the Argonauts; also known as the Symplegades. As the vessel bearing the Argonauts approached the Clashing Rocks, Jason released a bird which flew between them first, causing them to spring together. As they were drawing apart to repeat the process, the Argonauts shot the gap. The Clashing Rocks were different from the Wandering Rocks.
