How to use Phrixus in a sentence
For when a famine came upon the land, their cruel stepmother wished to kill Phrixus and Helle, that her own children might reign.
She said Phrixus and Helle must be sacrificed on an altar, to turn away the anger of the gods, who sent the famine.
Sometimes Phrixus seemed to call him in a thin voice, faint and low, as if it came from far across the sea.
When Chalciope saw him, she wept and took his hands and cried, "O cousin of my beloved Phrixus, go home before you die!"
The ghost of Phrixus stands by my bedside every night, wailing and will not be comforted, till the Fleece is brought home again.'Tales of Troy and Greece|Andrew Lang
