Minos announces the betrothal of Heptarian to the unwilling Ariadne and, as a celebration, there is a pankration, or fighting contest with no rules but a money prize. Jason decides to enter, trained by his friends and ultimately he and the previously unbeaten Heptarian are the finalists, Jason becoming a popular winner. Ariadne uses this as an excuse to persuade Minos that Heptarian's defeat is a sign that the marriage is not favoured by the gods. Minos is convinced but this antagonizes Pasiphae, who has Ariadne's friend and servant Korinna killed in revenge.
