The Friday 56, Voyage of Argo

Rules:
* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of Storytime with Tonya and Friends.
*Post a link along with your post back to Storytime with Tonya and Friends.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.


This week my book is The Voyage of Argo by Apollonius of Rhodes. I like it but it is sometimes hard to keep track of everyone. There are a lot of names. When they list who is going on the voyage they say the person's name, the father's name and sometimes that they are remembered for doing something to someone else who is named here just to confuse me because he plays no part in the story. But the story is still fun.

The sentence:

Next, Aphrodite of the long locks, wielding Ares' formidable shield.

Here they are describing the embroidery on Jason's cloak. There is a lot of stuff stitched on it. It must have been a big cloak.
