Jason is shown in heroic mode in 79–81. In his eagerness to play the rescuer, he does not wait for the ship to beach before jumping ashore; cf. Protesilaus, who was the first to leap ashore at Troy (Lucian 77.27–8, 530–1, Ov. Her. 13.93–4, Hyg. Fab. 103) and also the François Vase (Black Figure Krater, Kleitias, ABV, 76,1) which shows the ship coming to pick up Theseus with the young Athenians he rescued from the Minotaur, or just arriving in Crete.
