Some other writers give different list of Argonauts.

Pindar, a lyric poet of the 6th-5th century BCE, who wrote a number of odes, to commemorate the atheletes of ancient Greek games such as Olympian, Ishtmian, Nemean and Pythian games, as well as commemorate mythical figures. Pindar give a brief description of the adventures of the Argonauts, and only named a few heroes in Pythian Ode IV. Here is a short list of Argonauts from Pindar, in Pythian Ode IV:

Jason (Ιασων) son of Aeson & Alcimede; captain of Argo
Heracles (Ηρακλης) son of Zeus & Alcmene, from Tiryns
Castor (Καστωρ) son of Tyndareus & Leda, (Dioscuri), from Sparta
Polydeuces (Πολυδευκους) son of Zeus & Leda, (Dioscuri), from Sparta
Euphemus (Ευφημος) son of Poseidon & Europa, from Taenarus
Periclymenus (Περικλύμενος) son of Poseidon (or Neleus) & Chloris, from Pylus
Orpheus (Ορφεως) son of Oeager & Calliope, from Thrace
Erytus (Ἔρυτος) & Echion (Ἐχίων) sons of Hermes & Antianeira, from Alope
Calais (Κάλαϊς) & Zetes (Ζήτης) sons of Boreas & Oreithyia (Boreades)
Mopsus (Μοψος) son of Ampycus & Chloris; Lapith seer

Here are some of the members not listed in the work by Apollonius of Rhodes. These names came from the Greeks Apollodorus (Library I.9.16), Diodorus Siculus and Pausanias, and the Roman Hyginus.
