Description:

Hippalectryon:

A hippalectryon (or hippalektryon, from Greek ) is a type of fantastic hybrid creature of Ancient Greek folklore, half-horse and half-rooster, with yellow feathers. The front half is that of a horse, the rear half a rooster’s wings, tail and legs.

The oldest representation currently known dates back to the 9th century BCE, and the motif grows most common in the 6th century, notably in vase painting and sometimes as statues, often shown with a rider. It is also featured on some pieces of currency. A few literary works of the 5th century mention the beast, though no myths related to it are currently known.
