Jason and the Argonauts embarked on their legendary voyage to the eastern Black Sea in search of the Golden Fleece at Colchis circa 1200 B.C., before the destruction of Troy, on the Dardanelles Strait which,  with the Bosporus Strait, connects the Aegean Sea (the world ocean) to the Black Sea, a huge inland lake before the sea level rise of the world ocean because of the end of the Ice Age, known in ancient times as the Flood of Ogygos, an ancient Greek king who lived circa 1500 B.C., when the Ice Age ended within a matter of decades.  (This was the same flood as Plato’s Atlantis, but he mistakenly reported 9,000 solar cycles before Solon’s time that Altantis and much of Greece went under, rather than lunar cycles, or he mistook the egyptian word for hundred for the word for thousand, which are very similar in the ancient egyptian language.)

And Dardanus was a greek king from circa 1400 B.C., who founded Troy with his son Troas, in the decades after the sea level had risen with the end of the Ice Age, when the world ocean rose to connect to what had been that huge inland lake, now the Black Sea, through the Dardanelles, the namesake of king Dardanus, and that region of western Turkey, the Troas, named after his son, in the same timeframe as the legedary flood of Ogygos, which was the end of the Ice Age, as was Plato’s Atlantis story, and legends from India about the Rama Empire and Kumari Kandam having been consumed by the sea.

Having returned to the Mediterranean, near Sicily, Jason and the Argonauts were caught in a powerful nine-day cold front which blew them into the Gulf of Syrtis (where are submerged megalithic ruins), northern Libya, and then on into lake Tritonis, which had been a huge shallow lake during the Ice Age (which was connected to the post ice age risen sea circa 1300 B.C.), in what is now the Sahara desert, inland today from the Libyan coast through the low elevation Syrte desert, which was the waterway through which the Argo was blown, into the lake Tritonis, all but dried up by that time, about two hundred years after the beginning of the end of the Ice Age, as corroborated by the description of the shallow water of lake Tritonis amidst the then growing Sahara desert, when aqualithic north Africa became desert within a few centuries.
