Text Appearing Before Image:
his ancient friendship with thee thou wilt, per-chance, take this child and guard and foster him, and, as hegrows, instruct him with thy wisdom. For ^Esons sake I will rear and foster this child, saidChiron the king-centaur in a deep voice. The child lying on the moss had been looking up at the four-footed and two-handed centaur. Now the slave lifted him upand placed him in the centaurs arms. He said: 1 iEson bade me tell thee that the childs name is Jason. Hebade me give thee this ring with the great ruby in it that thoumayst give it to the child when he is grown. By this ring withits ruby and the images engraved on it ^Eson may know his sonwhen they meet after many years and many changes. And an-other thing ^Eson bade me say to thee, 0 my lord Chiron: notpresumptuous is he, but he knows that this child has the regardof the immortal Goddess Hera, the wife of Zeus.

Text Appearing After Image:
THE VOYAGE TO COLCHIS 5 know that his son will be reared and fostered by me, and that,when they meet again, there will be ways by which they will beknown to each other. Saying this Chiron the centaur, holding the child in his arms,went swifty toward the forest arches; then the slave took upthe horn and went down the side of the Mountain Pelion.He came to where a horse was hidden, and he mounted androde, first to a city, and then to a village that was beyond thecity. All this was before the famous walls of Troy were built; be-fore King Priam had come to the throne of his father and whilehe was still known, not as Priam, but as Podarces. And thebeginning of all these happenings was in Iolcus, a city inThessaly. Cretheus founded the city and had ruled over it in days be-fore King Priam was born. He left two sons, ^Eson and Pelias.^Eson succeeded his father. And because he was a mild andgentle man the men of war did not love ^Eson; they wanted ahard king who would lead them to conquests.
