In Greek myth, dragon's teeth feature prominently in the legends of the Phoenician prince Cadmus and in Jason's quest for the Golden Fleece. In each case, the dragons are breathe fire, their teeth, once planted, would grow into armed warriors.

He threw a precious jewel into the midst of the warriors, who turned on each other in an attempt to seize the stone for themselves; the five survivors joined with Cadmus to found the city of Thebes. The classical legends of Cadmus and Jason have given rise to the phrase "to sow dragon's teeth." This is used as a metaphor to refer to doing something that has the effect of fomenting disputes
