Mythology & Beliefs: Aeson
In Greek and Roman Mythology, Aeson was the King of Ioclus; father of Jason; overthrown by his brother Pelias and restored to youth by Medea.

Aeson in Greek and Roman Biography and Mythology (Αἴσων), a son of Cretheus, the founder of Iolcus, and of Tyro, the daughter of Salmoneus. He was excluded by his step-brother Pelias from his share in the kingdom of Thessaly. He was father of Jason and Promachus, but the name of his wife is differently stated, as Polymele, Alcimede, Amphinome, Polypheme, Polymele, Arne, and Scarphe. (Apollod. 1.9.11 and § 16 ; Hom. Od. 11.258; Tzetz. ad Lycophr. 872; Diod. 4.50; Schol. ad Apollod. 1.45; Schol. ad Hom. Od. 12.70.) Pelias endeavoured to secure the throne to himself by sending Jason away with the Argonauts, but when one day he was surprised and frightened by the news of the return of the Argonauts, he attempted to get rid of Aeson by force, but the latter put an end to his own life. (Ap)ollod. 1.9.27.) According to an account in Diodorus (4.50), Pelias compelled Aeson to kill himself by drinking ox's blood, for he had received intelligence that Jason and his companions had perished in their expedition. According to Ovid (Ov. Met. 7.163, 250, &c.), Aeson survived the return of the Argonauts, and was made young again by Medeia. Jason as the son of Aeson is called Aesonides. (Orph. Arg. 55.) - A Dictionary of Greek and Roman biography and mythology, William Smith, Ed.

Aeson in Wikipedia In Greek mythology, Aeson or Aison (Greek: Αἴσων) was the son of Tyro and Cretheus, who also had his brothers Pheres and Amythaon. Aeson was the father of Jason and Promachus with Polymede, the daughter of Autolycus.[1] Other sources say the mother of his children was Alcimede[2] or Amphinome.[3] Aeson's mother Tyro had two other sons, Neleus and Pelias, with the god of the sea Poseidon.[4] Pelias was power-hungry and he wished to gain dominion over all of Thessaly. To this end, he banished Neleus and Pheres and locked Aeson in the dungeons in Iolcus. Aeson sent Jason to Chiron to be educated while Pelias, afraid that he would be overthrown, was warned by an oracle to beware a man wearing one sandal. Many years later, Pelias was holding the Olympics in honor of Poseidon when Jason, rushing to Iolcus, lost one of his sandals in a river while helping Hera (Juno), in the form of an old woman cross. When Jason entered Iolcus, he was announced as a man wearing one sandal. Paranoid, Pelias asked him what he (Jason) would do if confronted with the man who would be his downfall. Jason responded that he would send that man after the Golden Fleece. Pelias took that advice and sent Jason to retrieve the Golden Fleece. During Jason's absence, Pelias intended to kill Aeson. However, Aeson committed suicide by drinking bull's blood. His wife killed herself as well, and Pelias murdered their infant son Promachus.[5] Alternatively, he survived until Jason and his new wife, Medea, came back to Iolcus. She slit Aeson's throat, then put his corpse in a pot and Aeson came to life as a young man. She then told Pelias' daughters she would do the same for their father. They slit his throat and Medea refused to raise him, so Pelias stayed dead.[6] - Wikipedia
