Pegasus is a winged stallion who is the son of Poseidon and Medusa in Greek mythology. It is a creature whose form depicts the relationship between gods and demons or monsters in the ancient world and the classical world. Pegasus helps the hero Bellerofon in his fight against the Chimaera and the Amazons.
Once, Bellerofon tried to fly a pegasus to Olympus so the gods punished him and dropped Bellerofon from Pegasus. From then on, Pegasus became the bearer of lightning for Zeus. The word “pegasus” is now used to refer to all kinds of winged horses in general

Unicorn and Pegasus
For those of you who are familiar with fantasy stories, you must have heard of Pegasus and Unicorn. The shape is indeed the same as a horse, but there are still many people who can’t tell the difference.
Literally, Pegasus is described as a winged horse, some say he was born from the relationship of Poseidon (in addition to the Sea God he is also called the Horse God) with Medusa (a woman who is cursed with snake hair). However, from these various meanings, the characteristics that are most widely believed are that it has large wings for flight and is pure white in color. He is also a creature that symbolizes wisdom and fame. In Greek mythology he is also in charge of delivering lightning to Zeus the sky god.
Meanwhile, the basic depiction of the Unicorn refers to Greek mythology about a creature in the form of a white, red and black horse. The creature has the beard of a goat and the tail of a wild boar, sometimes having the head of a deer.
In Chinese and Japanese folklore, the description can be even wilder with the depiction of a creature with the body of a deer and the mane of a lion. But from all these depictions, what is unique about Unicorns is the beautiful colors either on the horns or hair.
This creature, which is said to be only able to be caught by a girl, is said to always walk gently with soundless nails. Its horns are also believed to have healing magical powers.

Three Facts About Pegasus
- Firtsly, pegasus is known as a creature who is a friend of heroes in Greek mythology. One of them is Bellerophon, a Greek hero, who was sent by the King of Lycia to eradicate the Chimaera monster. While resting in the temple of Athena, the goddess came in Bellerophon’s dream and gave him a golden bridle and showed him where Pegasus was. Pegasus, who was drinking by the river, was finally tamed by Bellerophon and used as a mount to kill the Chimaera monster.
- Secondly, it is said that every time Pegasus stomps his foot on the earth, a spring appears. One of them is on Mount Helikon, which is called Hippokrene (horse spring). Poseidon ordered the mountain not to swell with the song of the Musai.
- Lastly, since living on Mount Olympus, Pegasus later married Euippe and gave birth to many other flying horses. Pegasus is not an immortal being. For that, Zeus respects Pegasus for serving him wholeheartedly. Zeus also placed Pegasus among the constellations. The constellation Pegasus is one of the 88 modern constellations, and also one of the 48 constellations listed by Ptolemy.
