Honor and Bravery
The Greeks admired honor and bravery in their heroes. Perseus was brave and Jason was honorable. Perseus is from the myth “Perseus and the Quest for Medusa’s head.” Jason is from the myth “Jason and the Golden Fleece.”
Perseus is brave because he went after Medusa and chopped off her head. Perseus also faced a sea serpent by turning the serpent to stone and rescues Andromeda the sea serpent.
Jason is honorable because he keeps his promises to all the people he meets. Jason also needs to rescue his dad’s kingdom from Pelias the terrible.
The Greeks see their heroes brave, honorable and not selfish.
