Ellipsis of a full oath of the form "I swear by Jove that…" Originally a literal oath; later a minced oath. These recordings have opened up major productions to viewers who may otherwise never have seen them. That said, the 12 labours of Hercules is more a simple, brief retelling of the events rather than an examination of derivatives like many other chapters in the book, which is a shame, in my opinion, because it means that it appeals to a different audience. Medea Live is free to view until 31st August, 2020; if you enjoy the show, please consider making a donation.
