In the first readings of Ovid, Liv reads the letters of Hypsipyle and Medea. Hypsipyle writes to Jason after hearing he's not coming back to Lemnos, she's heard of his new wife Medea and wants to tell him about the twins she gave birth to. Medea writes to Jason to remind him everything she did for him before he gave her up for a Greek princess. This is not a standard narrative story episode, it's simply a bonus reading of an epic.
