The Golden Fleece was in the possession of the king, gifted to him by Phrixus when he arrived there on a flying golden ram years before. Aeetes said he would give the fleece to Jason if he completed a few seemingly impossible tasks in the course of a single day. Upon learning them, Jason was left in utter desperation.

And Medea was not just anyone: in addition to being a princessshe was also a high priestess of Hecate well-versed in the arts of magic and sorcery. With the help of the balm, Jason successfully yoked the bulls and managed to plow the field in no time.
Prepared by Medea and following her advice, Jason flung a rock in the midst of the mighty warriors. Not knowing who had thrown it, the warriors turned on each other and, by sunset, Jason was the only one who remained alive on the field. On the contrary, he plotted with the leading men of Colchis to kill Jason and the Argonauts during the night.
Fearing something in this vein, Medea fled from her father and joined the Argonautsleading Jason to a sacred oak tree where the Golden Fleece hung, guarded by a sleepless dragon. Using her drugs and spells, Medea caused the dragon to fall asleep, just long enough for Jason to snatch the Golden Fleece and carry it back to the Argo.

Jason was a favourite with the goddess Athena and it was she who gave the first help to the expedition by having the great craftsman Argo build a strong fast boat to take the hero across the seas to Kolchis.
The ship, reportedly the first Greek long ship, was named after its maker and even contained a plank of sacred wood with the power of speech, taken from the sanctuary of Zeus at Dodona.

On finally reaching Kolchis, Aietes the king, perhaps understandably, would not hand over the fleece to Jason without a struggle. Instead, he promised Jason the fleece only if he performed some particularly difficult and dangerous tasks.
These were to plough a field using two fire-breathing bulls and to sow the teeth of a serpent in the field, and then fight the giants which sprang up from the magical teeth. Fortunately, Jason was assisted by Medeathe daughter of Aietes. Once again, Athena had intervened and sent Eros to make Medea fall in love with the hero. Medea was knowledgeable in magic, and she gave Jason a magic lotion to protect him from the fire-breathing bulls and advised him to throw a stone amongst the giants so that they would fight each other.
