Hellespont (HEL-es-pont). Strait connecting the Black Sea and the Aegean. Legendarily named for Helle, who had been saved from sacrifice by a flying ram and had fallen off the animal's back into this body of water. The ram's fleece was later hung in a grove and guarded by a dragon. This was the Golden Fleece sought by Jason and the Argonauts.
