First Adventures • Women of Lemnos (smelly)- come to the island of lemnos and the island is smelly. There are only women on the island. All of the men were killed off by the men. • Kill all the men- The queen of Lemnos saves her father but other than that all the men are killed. They were killed because all the men decided to leave the women and have nothing to do with them. They got slave women and wanted them as their wives and the original wives were mad so they killed them. They smell bad because they had a festival and did not honor Aphrodite and so she was mad and that was what they got in return (to smell bad). Xenia for the Argonauts- • Hypsipyle- Jason’s first woman- the queen who saved her fathers wife. She is going to be the first woman in Jasons story.
