The Greek legend of EGIDA CAPRIS
Even the Gods on Olympus were not unmoved by all the difficulties that Jason managed to overcome. The God Poseidon supported the pursuers, and the Goddess Athena supported Jason and the fugitives. In the heavenly battle that ensued, Poseidon forcefully hit Athena with his sword. Her shield was called Egida Capris since it was clothed in goat skin. It fell into the sea. In response to Athena’s heartfelt pleading, Zeus created the peninsula of Histria from her shield, and shaped the islands around Istria out of those pieces of the shield that had been shattered by Poseidon’s’ sword and scattered into the sea.
