"For him a filly to griffin bore;
Hight Hippogryph. In wings and beak and crest,
Formed like his sire, as in the feet before;
But like the mare, his dam, in all the rest.
Such on Riphaean hills, though rarely found,
Are bred, beyond the frozen ocean's bound."
Ludovico Ariosto (5 years and 1757 days ago)
