Son of Poseidon and the nymph Theophane, Chrysomallo was a ram with golden wool better known as the Golden Fleece.

This one, as he was flying, moved Frixo and his sister Hela when they fled from their stepmother Ino.

Hela fell, giving the strait its name, but Phryxus, upon reaching Colchis, sacrificed the ram to Zeus, giving the Golden Fleece to the king of the region, Aetes.

The expedition of the Argonauts was intended to carry the Golden Fleece to Athens.
