In Greek mythology, Medea was the daughter of King Aeëtes of Colchis, niece of Circe, granddaughter of the sun god Helios. Medea figures in the myth of Jason and the Argonauts, known best from a late literary version worked up by Apollonius of Rhodes in the third century BC and called the Argonautica, but included early on by Hesiod in his Theogony, written around 700 BC. Medea is known in most stories as a sorceress and is often depicted as a priestess of the goddess Hecate.
