Chimera (mythology)

in #photographylast year

In Greek mythology, Chimera (in ancient Greek Χίμαιρα Khimaira meaning fabulous animal; in Latin Chimæra) was a hybrid monster. According to the descriptions the monster had the body of a goat, the tail of a snake or a dragon and the head of a lion. Others claimed that he had three heads: one of a lion, another of a goat, that came out of his back, and the last of a dragon or snake, that was born in the tail. It is said to spit fire.

The Chimera was finally defeated by Bellerophon with the help of Pegasus, the winged horse, under the orders of King Yóbates de Licia. There are several descriptions of his death: some simply say that Bellerophon pierced her with his spear, while others argue that he killed her by covering the tip of the spear with lead that melted when he was exposed to the burning breath of Chimera.
