Have you seen our dragon? No, not the one George the saintly dragon-slayer slayed. No, this is Jason’s Dragon. For truth it is!

They pulled those oars and crossed the sea – Black we call it now, but Euxine, so it was then – and pulled into the Danube to escape their pursuers.

And did Jason slay the scaly beast? Well, you see the beastie sitting here.
