The Argo in Greek mythology

The story of Jason and the Argonauts is the most famous tale of Greek mythology, and the story of the quest to obtain the Golden Fleece has been told and retold for countless generations.

Jason and the band of heroes he travelled with were collectively called the Argonauts, and they were voyagers upon the ship Argo. The journey was a long one and the sailors of the Argo faced many trials and tribulations, but the Argonauts set to their oars with great vigour and succeeded in their mission.

The word argos in Greek means “swift”.
