The Argo sails again
Spiegel (in German) and in.gr (in Greek) are reporting on the reconstruction of Argo, Jason's legendary ship, that is about to be launched. After sea trials, the reconstructors plan to make a journey across the Aegean and through the Black Sea to Georgia, thus replicating the journey of the Argo from Volos (traditionally identified as ancient Iolkos) to Colchis.
