Pegasus, the winged horse, is the fruit of the union of Poseidon & the Gorgon jellyfish and springs from its neck when Perseus cut off its head. Perseus then mounted the winged horse to deliver Andromeda chained to his rock. It was also on Pegasus back that Bellerophon, descendant of the Corinthian kings, succeeded in defeating the Chimera, a lion-headed monster, with the body of a goat & the snake tail, which spat out flames. After his victory, pride made him commit an unforgivable fault: he decided to climb with Pegasus towards Olympus. Pegasus disturbs him & continues alone until the stay of the gods, while Bellerophon is thrown to the ground. He spent the rest of his life there, crippled and lonely, like a proscribed & a reprobate.
