The ancient Greek Gods and Goddess contain a wealth of stories and legends, wrapped in Myths which typically provide a story with a morale code designed to influence the reader into behaviour as fitting Greek culture of the era.
In this article, we look at Aegialeus and the myths and legends surrounding Aegialeus, Aegialeus relationship to and with other Greek Gods and Goddess and key events and stories which relate to ancient astrology and the changing seasons.
He was the son of the king Aeetes, the apparent keeper of the Golden Fleece, after Jason the Argonaut had retrieved the Golden Fleece it was said that Aegialeus' sister Medea [cunning] who was in love with Jason went with him, and took her brother with them, and when her father came after them, she butchered her brother and threw the pieces overboard, which halted Aeetes chase, as he stopped to retrieve the pieces for burial. But this does not make any obvious sense, other sources say Jason himself slew him, after Aeetes sent his son Aegialeus to retrieve his sister. But see book on The Fleece, when done?
