Go to Pegasus   pg.1


Pegasus, in Greek mythology, winged horse that carries the thunderbolt of Zeus. He sprang full-grown from the neck of the dying Gorgon Medusa. With a  slash of his hoof, he created the Hippocrene, a sacred spring of the Muses on Mt. Helicon. Hence, he  has often been
associated with the arts, especially poetry. Pegasus was captured by Bellerophon, who rode him through many adventures.
