[129] Quid referam Peliae. Medea here puts Jason in mind of another act of kindness she had done him. Pelias was king of Thessaly, and uncle to Jason, and therefore put him upon the expedition of the golden fleece. He had three daughters, Alceste, Amphinome, and Evadne, who, trusting to the false promises of Medea, cut him in pieces: for she had made them believe that she would restore him to youth. But her only object was to remove him out of the way, on account of the ill-will he bore Jason.
