[175] Pagasaeus Iason. Hero, weary of her present state of uncertainty and doubt, as being often divided from her lover, and reflecting on his danger whenever he visited her, thinks it would be better for her if she should suffer, from Leander, what Medea did from Jason, or Helen from Paris; I mean the seeming violence of being carried away. Jason is here called Pagasaeus, from Pagasae, a city of Thessaly.
