"Jason and the Dragon" by Salvator Rosa.


Helle (HEL-ee). Theban princess saved from sacrifice by a golden flying ram. Becoming dizzy on the animal's back, she fell into the sea. The ram flew on to Colchis, where its fleece was hung in a sacred grove guarded by a dragon. This was the Golden Fleece quested after by Jason and the Argonauts.
